Our Commitment to​ Fighting the Confidence Gap

Step Up is proud to partner with Kérastase, the world's leading luxury professional haircare brand, who reaffirms its mission beyond hair care with the Power Talks initiative aimed at closing the confidence gap between men and women. Based on the idea that one powerful conversation can have a profound and enduring impact, the two organizations host the Power Talk series and offer flash mentorship via our digital community. Why? Women who have had a mentor are 74% more likely to be very self-confident.

Focus on Flash Mentoring

Power Talks offers complimentary support for young women ages 18-29 as they identify and develop tools of success in key areas of career preparation through Flash Mentoring in our digital community. Flash Mentoring pairs mentors and mentees together for short-term, targeted, skills-based mentoring. Power Talks sessions include inspirational speakers followed by mentor moments, allowing participants to dive deep into developmental themes and explores topics that support them in thriving as they transition toward adulthood and the workforce.​
