Why become a member?

It’s lonely at the top. Leaders can almost never speak candidly about organizational challenges and personal struggle.
Peer learning offers confidential, brave spaces for leaders to work through their biggest challenges.
At EPIC we co-create our program to meet the needs of our members. Our member only events encourage reflection, and learning through experience sharing and storytelling.

The EPIC Member community is year-round, adaptable, and member driven.
