Balance is Bullsh*t 

We live in a world obsessed with the belief that life fulfillment and personal achievement comes from the illusion of balance. Maintaining the lie of perfectionism requires a constant calibration of work and life which keeps us playing small and totally exhausted. You know what you can't be when you're afraid and depleted? A badass! It's time to shout, "balance is bullshit" and move out of a perfection paradigm into an alignment mindset. Together we can blow up the bullshit fear-based system and become the best versions of perfectly imperfect selves.

it's not You: navigating bias & conflict at work

Women constantly receive the messages that if they did things differently, their work and personal experiences would be different. We are told to Lean In, Lean Out, speak out, conform and our organizations roll out “fix the women” programs. And guess what? These approaches haven’t worked because the problem is the workplace, not you. Together we will unpack the gender bias patterns at work, the intersection of cultural fluency, why women have conflict at work, and what we can do about it with actionable strategies. Join us for an inspirational, engaging, interactive and powerful session that gives women back their power.
