Aspire - Leadership for the future

Our pragmatic, academic focus ensures practical offerings founded on the latest research and findings.

ASPIRE’s founder, Dr. Sam Collins, brings an authentic, experiential- and research-based academic philosophy to all ASPIRE engagements, programs, services and offerings.

We are proud of our ability to be practical, flexible and grounded in the latest thinking, research and best practices related to gender diversity and inclusion and its societal and business effects.

Dr. Collins was awarded her Ph.D. on “The Future World of Work for Women Leaders in Banking and Professional Services in New York and London.” The goal of study was to break the logjam for women executives and create real change (or at least lead the way)—a goal for which she continues to work with ASPIRE.

Building Blocks for the Girls

We have to believe inside that we deserve to be where we are, and to achieve what we have achieved. But we also have to understand that we cannot hold a belief that society owes us anything and instead make our own destinies, and likewise complain that nothing will ever change without understanding that we can control our own reality.
