It happens to almost everyone: The mid-career stall.

NEW Rising Stars is designed to accelerate every mid-level leader, whether they’re on a fast track — or currently stuck in traffic.

This five-month leadership program includes a professional 360-degree assessment, a three-day in-person learning event, three interactive webinars and one executive coaching session (with an option for more sessions). 

Like all NEW leadership development programs, Rising Stars is based on the NEW Career Accelerator Model,™ created in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership.

Mid-career women participating in the highly engaging, multi-month NEW Rising Stars program will learn new leadership skills and receive needed feedback to propel their careers to the next level.

Graduates will come away with a better awareness of their strengths and areas for development and an expanded network of industry peers.

Hundreds of mid-level leaders have taken the NEW Rising Stars challenge.

  • More than 95 percent of 2017 graduates call NEW Rising Stars content "relevant.” 
  • More than 80 percent "would recommend NEW Rising Stars to other professional women at my level.”

If you’re ready to take your career to the next level, consult your supervisor or talent manager about registering for our 2018 program.

Who should apply

NEW Rising Stars is designed for NEW members who are mid-level managers seeking to contribute at a higher level at NEW partner companies. Organizations are urged to nominate a diverse slate of women to build cross-function expertise.
