Our Commitment to Equity
We are smarter, stronger and better, together. That’s why Momentum commits to diversity, equity and inclusion in our team, classes, programming, and content. Diversity, equity and inclusion are not just practices we teach–we live these values every day. We firmly believe that our world will be a better place when every individual can contribute their full range talents, thoughts, and experiences to the community.
History of The Program
In 2001, a group of dynamic, high-level leaders convened to discuss a means to elevate the professional potential of women throughout the State of Alabama. Momentum has been changing the landscape of possibilities for aspiring executive women ever since, developing their leadership skills and increasing their numbers, effectiveness and visibility. In turn, these women shape policy in their organizations and communities, impacting hundreds of women in their workplace and local networks. They become mentors to emerging leaders. Some take their seats on corporate and nonprofit boards. Some run for public office.
Momentum identifies top-level candidates, and through our 9-month curriculum we address the unique challenges facing women in leadership positions. Through skills-based training and mentoring, Momentum helps build the capabilities of emerging Alabama women leaders.
