EMPOWERING WOMEN TODAY
Women are increasingly occupying leadership positions in all sectors.
An exciting opportunity exists for women to flourish through work and for our organizations to flourish as women grow.
Yet, the conditions of women’s employment continue to indicate inequality in salary, advancement opportunities, and mutual respect among their peers. Further, their professional development needs are often overlooked.
Women are still underrepresented in many business sectors. Specifically, in Silicon Valley, women hold just 11% of executive positions and 15% of board positions.
We are in the midst of a cultural sea change for women in America.
It’s more important than ever that women have the skills to cultivate self awareness, find their authentic “yes” and their “no”, access courage alongside compassion, discover growth in challenge, and live in alignment with their values.
A new paradigm of leadership is emerging where awareness, connection, compassion and courage are becoming the drivers of success. These are skills that can be cultivated + this is where the The Mindfulness Advantage in Women’s Leadership meets corporate needs.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
We are stronger together and welcome you to join our community.
We would love to keep in touch, share resources, and let you know about upcoming corporate programs and public events.
A corporate program designed to explore and cultivate ways for women to show up as more authentic, courageous, and skillful leaders.
As a community of women we will explore cultural myths and biases about females in the workplace. Together we will create a new vision of possibility & strength with the resources needed to actualize this vision. We are stronger together.
Our focus is an internal (r)evolution. We participate in the evolution of possibility by building the internal scaffolding of leadership potential through self-awareness and inner wisdom. This isn’t about gender prioritizing, but a movement toward inclusive leadership that makes room for courage alongside compassion, competence alongside cooperation, and confidence alongside connection.
Through mindfulness practices, group exercises, somatic exploration, and writing exercises, each attendee will leave feeling more connected to themselves and the commitment needed to actualize a new paradigm of women’s leadership.
Practical tools will be woven throughout our time together that can be used immediately in the workplace and beyond.
- ½ day and full day workshops for women at all leadership levels
- 1:1 or group mindful leadership coaching (via video or in person)
- In depth 3 - 9 month group coaching intensive (in-person and virtual)
We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women's voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored.
