Empowering Future Executives

At Unified we believe you should never stop growing, learning and leading, which is why we started the Leadership Empowerment And Development (LEAD) program. LEAD fosters an open workplace community open to both men and women, specifically designed to educate and encourage female employees to pursue their highest career ambitions with confidence. Our goal is to embolden female leadership by creating open communication, improving productivity, increasing retention and attracting top industry talent.

Unified Speaker Series

Our speaker series, which hosts events once per quarter, was created to welcome some of the sharpest and most influential minds in business to speak about their own experiences, give career advice and answer questions. Unified employees of all levels are exposed to senior and C-level executives from media, finance, publishing and more.


Whether it’s learning the art of negotiation, how to be a more effective manager, creative thinking, or public speaking, LEAD workshops are on a diverse array of topics aimed to increase the skills of Unified employees. Members can attend these 1-2 hour long sessions during business hours, often taught by seasoned industry professionals.

LEAD Book Club

Arianna Huffington’s Thrive, Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink and, of course, Sheryl Sandberg’s iconic Lean In—these are just some examples of books discussed in the LEAD book club. Each quarter, members choose an influential work to read, discuss, and debate how it relates to the everyday work environment.

Mentorship And Community Outreach

Giving back is extremely important, and in LEAD we strive to do so in two main ways. First, through our mentorship program, where senior executives from within Unified as well as from outside companies can offer their advice and expertise. And second, through our community outreach committee, which aims to serve the community through various volunteer opportunities.
