Changing the world is hard work. You don't have to do it alone.

I helped take the sustainability initiative at a Fortune 200 company from a single, sad paragraph copy-pasted from something that legal approved forever ago, to a full-on program featured on conference stages and in classrooms. I’ve consulted with companies whose products you use daily, and I’ve worked behind the scenes to build an impact program at the nation's most-hated and fastest-growing company (guesses?!). 

But it hasn’t all been fun and glitter.

I’ve been where you are — 

I’ve watched climate-denying execs say, out loud, in decision-making meetings, “Frankly I’m not convinced too much carbon is a bad thing,” before shooting down new climate goals.

a team of one (or one fewer than you need to really make lasting change), thinking: my sustainability career is anything but sustainable. 

And I know you’ve asked, "How do I make my sustainability career more personally sustainable?"

I’ve had months of hard work go sideways because an under-briefed senior leader didn’t like seeing the color red on a slide with his program on it. And I’ve cried in the bathroom after copyright lawyers shot down 70% of a sustainability video I’d spent close to a year getting made with basically no budget at all. 

I know how hard it is to create systems, organizations, and products that serve our future — especially when you care so freaking much. I know that it's not just the work that’s hard — it’s also hard to leave your work at work when the world is on fire. 

I asked that too, and then I came up with an answer: through becoming an effective change agent, setting firm boundaries, and finally embracing indulgence so you can recycle your energy back into the world and your work. 

You can’t solve the world’s biggest problems if you’re running on empty. Trust me, I tried. 

I put so much on my plate that I basically had to walk away from my dream job just to remember who the heck I even was. And I watched countless badass women around me go through the exact same thing.

This helped me realize why organizations are — or aren’t — doing the right thing.

Spoiler: it usually isn't because of the business case for doing it. It comes down to how effective the people - often women - at the helm of these programs are at creating change.

As I roamed the female leadership landscape, engaging in training from the feminist movement’s favorite faces, I was disappointed that they taught women to lead like men. 

It wasn’t until I saw a very powerful woman in charge (and not wearing a suit) that I understood women’s leadership can look different — and is desperately needed.

We need more people like you in positions of power (fully charged to take on the task you’ve been assigned). 

People who are in favor of employing the softest force, the quiet rebellion, the boldness of two glasses of champagne — to influence and inspire change, and create a future we’re actually excited for.

People who want to overthrow the patriarchy, solve the climate crisis, and dismantle systemic racism. 
People who are battling outdated ways of thinking and birthing the new (literally, figuratively, or both.)

Oh, and we’ll bring the bubbly… and the glitter.

Let’s show the world what it looks like when change agents are turned all the way up.

don't worry - we're here to help
