About Membership

About Membership

Explore our membership levels below and select the investment and impact that’s best for you. With your membership, you will enjoy opportunities to mentor Step Up teens and young women, and have access to programs that inspire continued growth and connections in your own career!

Why Join?

Why Join?

Your membership dues are both an investment in yourself and an investment in the next generation of women leaders. For example, members who join at the Luminary Circle level and commit to donating $1,000 per year are underwriting one year of Step Up mentorship programming for one girl. While you’re investing in her future, you’ll be enhancing your own through your participation in Step Up community and network-building programs for members.
