gender equity in the workplace.

We Make Real Change.

We advise women in compensation and contract negotiations. Through coaching sessions, contract reviews, financial modelling, and more, we support women in negotiating for the pay they deserve.

​We advise employers on building more inclusive workplaces for women. We offer comprehensive services designed to help companies create an inclusive environment that empowers women to thrive throughout their careers. This ranges from sponsorship programs to ERGs to building more objective hiring, promotion and retention practices. We work largely with male-dominated industries including Syncra Construction, Thurber Engineering, QuadReal, Associated Engineering, 1Password, Article Furniture and more.

We provide workshops on high impact topics that help women succeed in the workplace. Elevate your professional journey with our interactive workshops.
