Edge 2018 

Come and find your EDGE! 

As mid-career female leaders, we often feel alone in facing our challenges. The reality is that many of us struggle with the same challenges, but we solve them in isolation. We need a vehicle through which to share best practices across companies and industries, and learn together through our collective experience.

EDGE is the first women’s mentoring experience of its kind targeting mid-career professionals.

As a participant, you co-create the 9-month EDGE agenda leveraging PEER Technology®. This ensures that the leadership content you receive is exactly what you need - this year - in your career.

Participant Outcomes

  • Re-engage in your Career and life

  • Build a Strategic Network

  • Executive Presence & Personal Branding

  • Coaching & Critical Thinking Skills

  • Influential Leadership & Negotiation

Who Should Attend?

  • High performing women that are looking to grow professional more in 9-months than they have grown in the past five years.

  • Women who feel stuck where they are currently and need a boost to get to that next step in their life and career

  • Women that are looking to be invested in and invest in others


EDGE is presented in partnership with Christy Uffelman, MHCS, CC and Align Leadership

Keisha _testimony

The PTC Edge program has been a phenomenal experience. When I entered PTC Edge, I expected it to be a traditional women’s leadership and development program. However, I discovered a safe place to develop meaningful personal and professional connections.  This program teaches every woman to tap into their inner self and learn how to become a more effective leader personally and professionally. I never realized that I was a somewhat introverted person in the workplace until participating in the program. I now have the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and do things I would typically never do, such as talk to people I do not know and share my journey as a woman of color. I now understand my power and strength, and have the confidence to own my ideas. I’ve also learned how to network more effectively with both women and men from a variety of industries. The experience has been truly transformative. Thanks to PTC Edge, I’m no longer afraid to ask for what I want.

Amy DepnteBefore EDGE I felt that I was stuck in my career/life and not sure which path to take. I always wanted to discover something more but never knew what “it” was. I quickly realized that I am not alone and many other women feel this way. Through this experience, I was given an opportunity to focus on myself and discover my personal passions outside of the working environment. I have built a great network, and had the privilege to create bonds with a group of fabulous powerhouse women. I feel empowered, refreshed, and grateful for this experience, and how it has strengthened my confidence in both my personal and professional life.
