  Rise Up Academy

In 2018, Wnet and Money20/20 joined forces to create Rise Up, a global program designed to provide support and actionable skills for women working to take the next steps to increased seniority within their careers. This exclusive program exposes participants to contacts, mentors, executive trainings and learnings that are proven to catapult careers to the next level.  Since it’s launch in 2018, Rise Up programs have been featured at Money20/20 events in Asia and Europe.

To provide continuing support for Rise Up Alumni, Wnet created the Rise Up Chapter.

We are excited to partner again in 2019 with Money20/20 to bring this program back to Vegas for its second iteration, complete with revamped initiatives for the most impactful experience. Wnet provides advisory support for content design, speaker selection and applicant selection.

Transformational Leadership Session

Sunday, October 27th, 1:30pm, Venetian Ballroom G-H, Level 2

Featuring Wnet President Carol Grunberg (Northwestern Mutual), Marie-Claude Nadeau (McKinsey), Joe Carella (University of Arizona), Randall Tucker (MasterCard), Osama Bedier (Poynt), Kelly Beatty (Worldpay), Gail Burgos (TSYS), John Beatty (Clover)

Transformational leaders know the facts: today's profits are driven by diverse teams who understand how to make strategic decisions and are empowered to act on those decisions. When leaders are committed to embracing risks, which include change and overcoming unconscious biases, they can lead transformation and generate profit.

This workshop will help you understand how leading companies have approached risk and change with the goal of increasing profits. It will use global research to show how companies leverage leadership teams and where corporations fall short of their potential. This workshop will reveal the neuroscience behind unconscious bias, strategic decision making, and embracing risk.

The moderator will lead Industry leaders to share key (and different) elements of transformational leadership that resulted in (different) areas of measurable business success. As a part of each leadership example, an expert in women in the workplace research (McKinsey & Company) will comment on related industry trends and opportunities; and an expert on strategic decision making and unconscious bias (Eller Executive Education) will explain the neuroscience and behaviors that were engaged to create successful outcomes.
