Career & Leadership Emotions & Relationships 7 Days

ReBoot Accel has been featured on The Today Show, ABC News, NBC, PRI’s The TakeAway, and in WSJ, Forbes, and HuffPost. Since 2014, Harvard MBAs Diane and Patty have helped over 2500 women resume careers. Their training as CTI coaches and experience facilitating workshops around executive presence, impact, and job search skills enable women returning to work to thrive. And their backgrounds in design thinking, agile development, multipliers, radical candor, and storytelling allow them to tap the best of Silicon Valley’s innovation practices.

ReBoot Accel was created to help energized women resume careers by getting them current, connected, and confident. This week, they will coach you through their proven approach to unlocking opportunities for the next phase of your life. You will leave with a valuable ReBoot Toolkit, action steps, and accountability partners. Recognizing the stages women experience throughout life, and integrating with MEA’s core curriculum, this week allows women to focus on themselves and the rich lives they can create in their next career.

Who is this workshop best suited for?

“I had the pleasure of attending this workshop and found the experience to be enlightening and inspiring. I received helpful feedback and strategies for improvement, in a professional and caring way. Diane and Patty are an excellent team with an extraordinary vision and compassion for helping women live their best lives.” - January 2020 MEA graduate. If you’re a woman seeking connection, community, and coaching, while exploring new possibilities, this week is for you.

Note: All workshops cover the foundational Modern Elder curriculum and provide a comprehensive set of tools to help navigate midlife, resulting in a Certificate in Mindset Management. Guest faculty bring a unique experience to each week led by MEA staff.

Tuition

Consider it an investment in your future.

For all workshops, MEA tuition is $5,500 per person for a private room, or $4,000 per person for a shared room. Full-tuition attendees must deposit 50% upon application, with the balance due 30 days prior to arrival.

Please note: In response to Covid-19, for the health and safety of our guests, all rooms will be single occupancy through the end of 2020, unless you are applying with a partner. You can still apply at the shared room rate, but premium rooms with king or queen beds and extra amenities will be given to single room applicants.

Scholarships

MEA is a social enterprise, committed to socio-economic diversity.

We know that our entire society is made stronger when everyone has the opportunity to learn, participate, and grow, no matter how much they make for a living. We offer two levels of scholarship on a need-aware basis and are committed to at least half of our students receiving some form of scholarship.

The scholarship request is included in the workshop application form. Please be aware that we have more scholarship applicants than available spaces—applying for full tuition does maximize the likelihood of getting placed in your preferred workshop.

Scholarship Levels (All scholarships are shared accommodation.)

$1,250 scholarship (Students are responsible for $2750 tuition.)

$2,500 scholarship (Students are responsible for $1500 tuition.)

We announce scholarships within five weeks of our workshops. (See workshop listings for announcement dates.) Scholarship tuitions function as the deposit and are due in full within five business days of announcement.

All scholarships are for shared room accomodation. Exceptions for specific medical or personal conditions may be considered.

Please consider the following scholarship criteria before applying: You must demonstrate financial need, and your application must be received at least six weeks prior to the workshop start date.

Payments and Cancellations

And now for the part about money.

For full-tuition students, a 50% deposit is due at the time of your application. Your acceptance will be confirmed within 3-5 business days. If we’re unable to confirm acceptance, your deposit will be automatically refunded. The balance is due 30 days before the start of your workshop.

Scholarship applicants will be notified of acceptance five weeks prior to the start of the workshop. The remainder of tuition is due in full within five business days of the scholarship notification.

Deposits are non-refundable. But if you give us a reasonable amount of time to fill the spot, we can transfer your deposit to another workshop, within a year, based on availability. We know that traveling right now is a very personal decision.

We cannot provide credit for no-shows, early departures, or program dissatisfaction.

In the event that we must cancel—and in this crazy, “pandemics are a real thing” world, it sometimes happens—we’ll let you know as far ahead of the workshop start date as possible and offer a refund or accommodate a transfer to another workshop, if you’re interested.
