Join Us

We welcome you to join our deliberate community for women leaders working to amplify our impact. The experience starts with our signature first-year cohort-based program, for which applicants must apply by following the steps below.

Tide Risers are located across the United States and abroad. In 2020, we will offer first-year cohort programs in the following locations:

- Fairfield County, Connecticut -
- Jersey City, New Jersey -
- New York City -
- Northern Virginia -
- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -
- Seattle, Washington -
- Washington, D.C. -



Our Program

The Tide Risers journey begins with our signature one-year, cohort based experience. Members begin their journey in January, and work through December with their cohort of carefully selected women from a diverse array of backgrounds.

Cohorts meet together, in person, once per month on weeknights, with some exceptions: our kick-off session in January takes place on a weekend day, and we do not meet in person in July or August. Tide Risers sessions deliver a curriculum tailored to the needs of our Members and designed to build skills, provide accountability, and develop the lasting community that will serve us all for years to come.

In addition to the monthly gathering, Members enjoy occasional social outings, monthly individual assignments, small group work, global video conferences, lively connection via our online members-only platform, and our annual summit bringing together Members together from across the nation.

Members who have successfully completed the first-year cohort program graduate to become Empriseurs, the women leaders who remain dedicated to the Tide Risers mission and community. Empriseurs enjoy a series of events that continue their Tide Risers journey within the larger network of women leaders across the nation.




Our first-year cohort program costs $190 per month for 11 months after an initial deposit in January of $750, and is an annual commitment.

This includes:
- Full membership in Tide Risers -
- Monthly in-person sessions led by your dedicated Tide Risers Facilitator -
- Our
Summit, a deep-dive experience gathering Tide Risers from across the nation -
- Global video conferences led by members of the Tide Risers Leadership Team -
- Membership to our private online platform, connecting our whole community -

We do offer other packages that may be more economically feasible. Also, the generosity of our sponsors make possible a limited amount of financial assistance for Members who need it. Please reach out to us if you would like to learn more about these options. We work very hard to make Tide Risers accessible to all, so please don’t hesitate to ask.
