Career Empowerment Alliances

Career Empowerment Alliances are groups of eight–ten women that meet virtually each month. In these groups, AVIXA Women’s Council members dive into topics related to career advancement, work-life balance, conflict resolution and much more. Each group has a facilitator to organize the meetings and provide members monthly training materials. These groups are built on a mutual respect and trust which grows over time. Being in such a group connects members with mentors at various levels of experience that can help guide them throughout their careers. Join Today!


Local Groups

Our Local Groups meet regularly in a local area to get together to learn, network and build lasting relationships with other women in the industry. These groups are still forming across the globe so if you are interested in starting one or joining an existing group, please fill out the interest form and we will get you connected!
