Mastermind Group For Emerging Women Of Color Leaders In Counseling, MFT And Psychology


Heather and Ulash are excited to support our emerging women of color leaders in the field because we have noticed the lack of support for women of color who have leadership potential. This Mastermind group aims to provide emerging women of color leaders a supportive space to explore one personal goal as it relates to their leadership aspirations. As part of Ulash’s American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) Certificate in Leadership project, we will be providing this group at no cost to those that join.

Who Should Attend the Women of Color Emerging Leaders Mastermind Group?: Students or early career women in the field; self-motivated in wanting to work on their one leadership goal; want a supportive team of Mastermind group members and facilitators, and can commit to ALL the five Mastermind online meetings from January until May 2019.

Benefits for Members: This small FREE group will include two facilitators with experience in supporting the women's leadership goals. Group peers give feedback, help brainstorm new possibilities, and set up accountability structures that keep members focused and on track.

Group Format and Meeting Dates and Times: The online group format (via Skype or Zoom) will consist of 3-4 members who will be screened to ensure suitability for this group. We require members have: ONE clear leadership goal they want to work on, are motivated to work on this goal during the 5 month duration of the group and can attend all the follow dates and times: January 18, February 8, March 15, April 19 and May 3, 2019. Times will be 10am-1pm, Pacific Time. More information will be provided during the screening interview.

Screening Process and Recruitment for Group: The facilitators will screen each applicant to ensure group members are a good fit. Potential applicants who are interested in joining this group, please email and we will send you a form and set up time to chat via phone. If you have any questions, please email us.
