Building Leaders

When you join Areté, you gain a network of female leaders who have not only succeeded in their chosen professions but have committed themselves to helping other women succeed.

Many Areté members volunteer their time and expertise to help build the next generation of faith-based women business and ministry leaders. They provide C-level training and support through nonprofit boards, community and school leader mentorship programs, and churches and ministries.

Sharing Knowledge

Areté members extend their knowledge, experience and influence to other leaders and communities, even in post corporate career seasons.

Many members hold paid corporate board director roles, and nonprofit and community board roles. Others have chosen to serve ministry and nonprofit endeavors following their corporate careers.

Helping Women Across the Room

As Areté members, we believe that we are ‘better together’ as a group and operate as one another’s advisory board and think tank in a pure, rich, confidential space where vulnerability and transparency are shared freely and authentically.

We encourage and raise each other up, having each other’s back in and out of our professional seasons.

Helping Women Around the World

When it comes to helping other women thrive, Areté members know no borders. From training female leaders in impoverished nations and areas to build self-sustaining communities, to helping resolve homelessness, to equipping women leaders with the knowledge to succeed,
