About The Koa Club Community

Be a participant in a FollowMyLead Program™

Even though the number of women in leadership have grown in recent years, women are still very much underrepresented at every level in key roles in the workplace and in every industry. We have speciallydesigned our structured leadership programs, known as the FollowMyLead™ Programs, to help professional women prepare for the successful pursuit and management of leadership roles. The Programs are focused on equipping professional women with the tools they need to increase their leadership impact and to create positive lasting personal and professional change.

About the FollowMyLead Programs™

“Women helping each other – coaching, mentoring and providing tips – is a great way for us to be our own force.”

Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo

Julie Y

I highly recommend this program for any women in any position of any field. It really helps you realize, acknowledge, focus and change or re-direct not only the way you think about yourself and others that you work with, but also reflect on how you are perceived by your peers, co-workers, leads, supervisors, etc. This is a great program to empower women through all aspects from how you communicate, to how you dress, your self-confidence and how you can achieve your goals.

Nikki E

This is my first year participating in the Koa club. What excited me most about reading about this club is that it consists of women leaders. Rarely does one find a space for just women. Even more so, very rarely does one find a space of women leaders who are willing to raise the tide for all boats to rise with them. This year, I will be working on finding what brings me the most joy and get more of THAT. Excited to be here and to see what unfolds.

I love being a part of this program. It’s led by women for women. I’ve gained powerful insights in not only my career but on how to enrich my life. I’ve really enjoyed watching other women as they step into their power and being a support structure to help them do it. Susan and this program really live up to their motto – Be Koa!

Mellicia M

Where else can you go to hang out with ambitious, relaxed, fun women while you learn about how to take your career to the next level, or try snowshoeing or discuss a favorite book? I've loved learning while socializing as a member of the Koa Club. I've also been very fortunate to present a session on, "Money and Style" with more to come in the future. Both as a member and a presenter, I'm impressed by the smooth logistics and the stellar crowd. Highly recommend!

My Koa Club experience has been wonderful, to say the least! Susan (the founder and CEO) is involved in every event - she is so thoughtful and engaging and loves to bring people together to learn new things on every level. Since joining, I have taken away lessons and skills that I can apply to my everyday personal and professional life. I have also fostered a handful of awesome relationships with other Koa Club members and cannot wait to see what the upcoming year has to offer! Truly a great place to meet like-minded people and learn new things.

socialize. learn. build.

We know it is not easy to create a connection with others, especially with those who are not a part of our work or personal lives. We believe our community stands out because we are focused on building a robust and supportive environment for our members, advocating for transparent relationships between our members and creating a sense of belonging. We provide many opportunities within our community for members to find allies and to bond over the experience of learning and developing common or new interests together.
