Preparing Women for what’s Now,
and what’s next.

Financial Fluency

In today's world, financial independence is essential. MELD prepares Gen Z women with vital financial skills, covering everything from effective salary negotiation to building solid credit. Our program focuses on the fundamentals of personal finance and smart investment strategies, guiding participants towards a financially secure future through informed decisions and wealth building.

Professional Development

MELD focuses on advancing high-potential women via targeted professional development. Our programs enhance leadership readiness and career success, offering mentorship, skill workshops, and networking tailored to their professional growth.

The Innovation Economy

MELD offers a distinct perspective on Gen Z women, gained through comprehensive insights and primary qualitative and quantitative research. Our deep dive into this demographic provides a unique understanding of their aspirations, challenges, and contributions to the innovation economy.

“There is undeniable pressure for women to conform at all levels in the still male-dominated world of business and the result is that nobody wins... andbusinesses lose double-fold.”



“Companies with above-average diversity produced a greater proportion of revenue from innovation (45% of total) than from companies with below average diversity (26%). This 19% innovation-related advantage translated into overall better financial performance."

Boston Consulting Group

“Research shows a 15% profitability boost at firms with 30% women leadership compared to similar firms with no female leaders.”


Bringing together talent with
game-changing leaders.

MELD is built on a spiral approach to learning, providing forums
to engage consistently, building trust and leading to deeper
questions and stronger relationships.
