The Wise Women’s Council is Back For A Fourth Year
We are two weeks away from kicking off our fourth class of The Wise Women’s Council, and we have an extraordinary group of people joining us for the year ahead. The Wise Women’s Council (WWC) is our year-long leadership incubator for women business leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators who are also navigating pregnancy, parenthood, and motherhood. We go deep together for the better part of a year and support women at their growth edge who want to continue to level up in their life and career.
Listen in to how the Wise Women’s Council works
In this episode, I’m diving into the nuances of the program: how I’ve designed it, what parts of past mastermind programs I’ve used, why I changed the structure to better fit the lives of working parents, and the research behind why I’ve made the program the way it is.
Over the last few weeks I have been interviewing, talking, laughing, and even crying with so many of you during our interviews and gathering calls, and I’m looking forward to spending the year ahead with so many of you.
If you’ve been thinking about applying to join us, if you’ve never heard of the program before, or you’re watching along, listening and learning (I see you! I do this, too), this episode is about what the program is for, how I’ve designed it, and the program goals we have for the people who join us.

The Startup Parent Podcast — Episode #178
IN THIS EPISODE:
- How the program design of The Wise Women’s Council fits into the busy schedule of a working parent, and why we only have two “live” IRL calls per month.
- How we go deep with connection without having that many in-person events (I have secrets and structures and it really works).
- Who this program is for, and why—and whether or not I think you should join.
