POWER MOVES
Chief teams up with AvroKO on three
clubhouses designed by women for women

Between the panels Lindsay Kaplan appears on and
the advice-dispensing coffee dates she agrees to, the
cofounder of Chief, the exclusive network that arms
C-suite women with tailored guidance and resources,
sometimes marvels at her path to leadership. Many
other executive women, she discovered, do too.
Kaplan, who serves as chief brand officer,
launched Chief in 2019 with CEO Carolyn Childers.
Both were previously at startups (Kaplan was vice
president of communication and brand at Casper;
Childers was senior vice president of operations at
Handy and headed the launch of Soap.com until it
was acquired by Amazon) and both faced challenges
they wished they could navigate with input from their
peers. " As we went higher up the ladder, we had less
support. All of a sudden, we became de facto mentors
to others when we needed more mentorship to make
critical decisions, " recalls Kaplan.
That lack was the impetus behind Chief, a space
for women who are CEOs or rising vice presidents.
Membership is open in New York, Los Angeles,
Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and Washington,
DC, with some 4,000 members (35 percent identify
as BIPOC) from companies like Netflix and Nike. A
waitlist of more than 8,000 women across the globe
underscores the necessity of the vision.
Anchored by a proprietary app, all of Chief's
services and events are accessed digitally, including
core groups led by executive leadership coaches-10
women at the same professional level culled from
different industries. Still, many members will be
eager to meet in person post-COVID, and a trifecta of
flagship clubhouses in New York, LA, and Chicago,
designed by a women-led team from AvroKO's New
York office, offer fitting backdrops to exchange ideas
and cultivate relationships. " They truly understood
how to design for women without being overtly
feminine, " says Kaplan.
Chief was already on AvroKO's radar when
Kaplan and Childers reached out. " We felt a kinship
with the founders' sense of how spaces and design
could be targeted for women without falling into
the tropes of what design for women should look
like, " says AvroKO principal Kristina O'Neal. " Chief
members arrive powerful, so we wanted spaces that
maintain confidence and energy. "
