With a big firm background in management consulting and organizational change - and an MA in gender/cultural studies - Femily (aka Emily Howe) advises tech and other male-majority companies, like law and finance to help them advance womxn, foster inclusion of all kinds, and reduce workplace bias.
Her linear, evidence-based [intersectional feminist] approach looks at what research - plus individual company data - says is not working well (from recruiting to retention to promotions). Then, she helps her clients implement solutions based on what the latest research says works to fix those issues.
Industry Research + Company Data + Individual Input.
INCLUSION ISN'T JUST THE RIGHT THING TO DO - IT'S THE RIGHT THING FOR BUSINESS.

Femily's popular, digital "Rebel Boss" leadership courses give ambitious womxn concrete, evidence-based instruction on leading as a womxn in today's world, rebelling against dis-empowering "shoulds," outsmarting all "isms", and making big life/business plans that really "stick."

That same year, she launched San Francisco's Executive Womxn's forum at the Commonwealth Club.
