Why peer groups?
It’s lonely at the top. Leaders can almost never speak candidly about organizational challenges and personal struggle.
Peer groups offer a confidential, brave space for leaders to work through their biggest challenges.
We co-create each cohort to meet the needs of our members. Peer groups encourage reflection, and learning through experience sharing and storytelling.
Peer groups are ongoing, adaptable, and member driven.

How much does it cost to join?
EPIC's Cohort program is on a sliding scale based on an organization’s revenue. We will not turn away any organization based on inability to pay.
While all memberships fees reflect subsidies that have already been applied, EPIC is able to further subsidize some memberships through sponsorships and other investments to ensure that programming is accessible.

"There is so much that we are sharing and unloading, it feels good in the moment, but over time there is something that happens in your psyche that I know I'm not the only one going through this."
