‘Launch of Aurora Program 2024 – Introducing New Leaders!’

Rocket Software recently celebrated the launch of the fourth year of its Aurora Program, a development course tailored to empower women leaders in the organization. The program aims to build and strengthen their careers, enhance leadership styles, and practices. The emphasis is on creating a network of empowered women who can take control of their careers and inspire others to do the same.

During the kick-off event, participants were welcomed by Addie Schwartz, CEO of reacHIRE, and Libby Hillenbrand, senior director of leadership development and DEI at Rocket Software. Hillenbrand expressed excitement about empowering the women in the program, while Schwartz emphasized the opportunity for participants to pay it forward and share their learnings with others.

A panel of women Rocketeers and Aurora graduates shared their experiences and learnings from the program, highlighting the importance of building a strong support network and empowering each other. The program aims to help members become the best version of themselves so they can uplift other women and invest in their futures as leaders.

The Aurora Program mentors this year include seasoned professionals with over 30 years of experience in various fields, who will guide the participants in their leadership journey.
