My group provided unbiased support and valuable insight to give me the push I needed to have some hard conversations. Now I find myself applying those different perspectives to my daily work life and it's yielding amazing results.

The group provides constructive feedback and encouragement that helps me reflect on actions and decisions I've made or need to make in my professional development. This has helped my self-awareness and decision making.

I have a really good group. We are at similar stages career-wise. Three people who are expecting babies. Other folks have really young children. It's really hard to talk about work without what ELSE is on your plate. It's really nice to share that point of connection. It allows us to think BEYOND learning and growing in careers. There are a lot of other sides you have to take into consideration.

It’s refreshing to bring up an issue and realize I'm not alone. It’s great to hear perspectives across different geographies, industries, functions, and how they've solved it. It's sort of like phone a friend, but you get six very different takes, and some of them build on each other.

Diana Rothschild

Director of Retail

I've recently made big progress in locking down the business model, working with my business accelerator. These convos have given me a lot of clarity.

I've been impressed by Sidebar’s technology platform. The real time agenda tracker at the top of our weekly meetings really helps the group stay on track. I would love to implement something similar for my Microsoft Teams calls at work.

I've never been in a networking type setting where, so quickly, people are so supportive of one another and open about their challenges.

Jessica Dominiczak

I've been part of groups where there is no facilitator before. The facilitator makes a big impact, adjusting on the fly and pushing where it's important.
