I loved being with and hearing from other professional women about how they navigate negotiations, difficult situations, challenges and minefields at work! It was helpful to brainstorm useful solutions together and I found the collective exercises and new perspectives really beneficial.
I wasn’t sure if I should attend this workshop, but I’m really glad that I did. I loved the group aspect and the guided conversations.
I wasn’t convinced I don’t advocate for myself enough, but after this workshop, I see where I can improve on things. My favorite part was channeling the Inner White Guy! I think this is a great strategy to use.
This workshop puts a lot of concepts you may not have thought about into a digestible, doable format that you can refer to again and again.
Cynthia’s Stop Settling in Your Career workshop goes hand in hand with Jessica Bennett’s Feminist Fight Club. If you’ve ever felt short-changed or devalued by a client and/or workplace, you need to watch this workshop online or attend in person.

I enjoyed the hands-on, collaborative nature of the workshop. If you want to be motivated and encouraged to take the next step with your career, you should attend. I’m glad I was able to prioritize myself before work and make the time to come.
This workshop helps you identify and articulate how we women self-sabotage ourselves and are socialized to behave in certain ways in the workplace. And it gives practical and empowering advice. I was afraid the workshop would become a “man-hating” forum. But it wasn’t at all; it was mostly a time to grow as women in self-awareness.
I could see how much care Cynthia put into preparing this workshop and building this community. I got drawn in right away because of her passion, care, and commitment. It was amazing!
What was my favorite part? Cynthia’s energy, passion, politics, humor, and the tips, of course! The workshop was helpful, creative, full of smart and easy tips from a feminist!
This workshop made me feel FABULOUS. Energized. Confident. Hopeful. THANK YOU. I’d absolutely recommend this workshop. It blew the box open on how I’d been thinking about applications of my skills and interests and gave me an appreciation for the power of (re-)framing. My favorite part was when Cynthia talked about all the specific reasons that having a conversation about what we do (and how and why) is a gift – specifically, no longer vying in competition, but setting our own terms and transcending the game. I was afraid this workshop wouldn’t be for me, but I am so happy I came – it showed me the many dimensions and shared threads across our work.
I feel empowered from this workshop. And also aware of how much self-doubt and confidence issues play a role in my difficulty in marketing myself as an oral historian. I liked the strengths-based approach, focusing on what we love, what we do, and what we can do. This workshop was really valuable in getting oral historians to think more concretely about what we do and why other people should invest in it.
I loved the action steps and unique value proposition, all the practical parts! This workshop opened up my thinking and lightened my attitude about the future. I feel less stuck and frustrated.
I feel empowered and inspired by this workshop. You’ll get coaching and guidance – that push toward what you’re looking for.

I feel amazing after this retreat! I have so many insights from my team that I feel like I understand them better. My favorite part of the afternoon was the guided reflection on growth and transitions. The examples of reframing our thoughts and the attention paid to the value brought by individuals (as people and not simply workers) were excellent! I wish we had scheduled this for a whole day. This has also helped me grow as a leader so I’m excited to build my next team with the knowledge I’ve gained form today! Cynthia rocks!!!
This retreat made me feel less anxious about the future and more equipped to take on future challenges. I realized that although challenge can be stressful, with a proper mindset, things will work out. Awesome retreat!

Lots of helpful information. Super friendly, relatable, awesome. Perfect!
Practical tools, helpful tips, not overly optimistic – really realistic in what steps can be taken. Thank you!
