IMPERIA was created to develop the premier global resource for women’s leadership development, focused on high-potential women creating change, and giving them the rocket boost they need to build their empires. It’s difficult to be a woman on the cutting edge of her chosen profession or path, and we wanted to ensure there’s a place she can be welcomed, understood, and supported.
We knew in order to do that, we would need to redefine the narrative of what it means to be a powerful woman in the world. We also know how important lenses are, even down to our name. We’re fans of the classics, and went to ancient Latin to find ourselves. Unfortunately, there is no feminine derivative of the word “power” (“imperium”) in Latin — so we created one. And most importantly, we know the critical support a strong community provides — so we’re building a global one.
And as supporters of empire builders, we knew it was important for us to be a for-profit company and build an empire of our own. We absolutely believe it’s possible to do good things in the world and do well as a result. In fact, Jennifer was preaching this one back in 1994, in her senior year of college at NYU’s Stern School of Business. It didn’t go over so smoothly back then. But now that conscious capitalism is something being embraced and understood, we feel like the world can hear us at last.
With IMPERIA, we’re furthering the journey begun in 2015 when we launched as The Concordia Project. Here’s what the road looks like:
Initial think tank discussions and workshops with women from 10 different countries around the world.
Launch global innovation incubator, curate participants from 50 countries spanning all continents. Introduce live events and workshops focused on Self-Directed Empowerment™.
Begin gathering data on first-of-its-kind study about women.
Almost fully global representation of women in our innovation incubator.
Fully global participation in our innovation incubator, and other fun things we can't share just yet.
