Close the Gender Gap | Sponsor a Woman Campaign


Liderança Group provides a Collection of Unique Online Education Programs for Women to Drive Economic Recovery in 2022 and Combat the Growing Gender Gap in the Workforce. Sponsor a woman to make a difference!


In response to the rapid decline of women in the workplace, Liderança Group created a specially curated collection of online educational programs tailored to women. Projections based on economic scenarios developed by McKinsey and Oxford Economics estimate that employment for women may not recover to pre-pandemic levels until 2024—two full years after the recovery for men. Female workforce participation has already declined to 57%, the lowest it’s been in over 30 years. Without taking action, such as offering targeted and accessible training programs, there is a possibility that female labor force involvement could face its sharpest sustained decline since World War II.


“Not only does the drop in female participation in the workforce negatively impact the global economy, but it also unravels decades of work done to close the gender gap," says Cathy Light, Founder, and CEO of Liderança Group and 2021 Top 10 Women in Cloud Entrepreneur. “Additionally, multiple studies show that a lack of diversity prohibits innovation, resiliency, and significant revenue increases for businesses. We need more female employees, entrepreneurs, and leaders, not fewer. That need drove my team and me to create educational programs tailored specifically to women. We want to change this devastating narrative by helping women upskill and grow their business prowess, building both confidence and capabilities through accessible educational programming.”

The six female-focused educational programs offered by Liderança Group can help women feel more confident reentering the workforce, launching their own business, or leading diverse teams. Industry leaders and specialists have thoughtfully curated each program to encourage women to dream bigger and reach further.

Liderança Group’s Women’s Programs include:

Women Tech Training provides learners with the knowledge and skills to excel at current and future project deliverables. Technology is ever-changing. To find sustained success in the industry, one must continuously learn, grow, and upskill.

“We need to come back strong in 2022,” says Light. “Many women have spent a great deal of time the last two years focusing on their families. Now is the time for them to go get or create what they want by investing their time and talents in what they love.”
