DO I HAVE TO WORK IN THESE INDUSTRIES TO JOIN: Yes, NEXT MAN UP is designed to address professional growth in specific industries. In a concerted effort to best utilize the resources of our mentors/coaches we are purposefully targeting their industries of expertise and influence.
WHY IS NEXT MAN UP FOR MEN ONLY: NEXT MAN UP was created as a support system by male leaders already providing guidance and support to less experienced executives. We decided to address a clear need with a more formal process inspired by a similar program created for our female counterparts with whom we are aligned and support our vision.
