Become A More Inclusive Organizational Culture with the Women.Consulted.® approach.

Using a foundation of emotional intelligence, mindfulness and community building, Women.Consulted.® provides a framework of integral leadership skills to accelerate the potential and engagement of diverse women@work.

We are a consultancy designed with the mission of elevating women via innovative training, inclusive programming and the organization of transparent, internal community.

Why Does This Matter to Your Business?


Through education, understanding and personal responsibility, we can collectively shift the landscape of the workplace to be more inclusive.

In our work, we'll speak candidly about creating change from within through personal responsibility, emotional intelligence, mindfulness and unconscious bias. And then we will co-create an action plan for impacting the teams.

The Women. Consulted.® content is invaluable in teaching women leaders (and someday leaders) the tools to lead boldly from a place of mindfulness, community and strengths.

"Cyndie brought an energy and style of thinking that invigorated everyone—both men and women alike. By shifting our perspectives, participants were able to use fear as a way to build courage. In our space (a company where 'giving' is at our core), we attract very passionate and compassionate people willing to advocate for others. This workshop gave the encouragement and tools to advocate for oneself both inside and outside of the organization."
Natasha Ballard: Manager of Culture and Experience, TOMS

+ Why is this framework successful?

Our framework underpins the self-advocacy and emotional intelligence that women need to advance. It supports a holistic approach to diversity, which promotes emotional health for women that gives greater satisfaction and fulfillment. This, in turn, leads to greater engagement and financial success for employers.

+ Why do we exist?

Whether raising children or raising funding or both; women need a supportive structure that empowers us to thrive. Women deal with a subset of challenges that are very specific to being a woman. We experience consistent unconscious gender bias, impostor syndrome, fear and low confidence on an almost daily basis. And though these traits do not solely impact women; they do have a greater impact on how women show up in the workplace. And in an even larger context, these feelings and behaviors inadvertently pit women against one another. To truly build an inclusive workplace, women need aditional support structures to thrive.


And here’s the data.

  • In 2019, women still make just 78 cents for every dollar earned by men. Black women earn only 64 cents and Latinas only 54 cents for each dollar earned by white men.

  • Gender inequality is not only a pressing moral and social issue but also a critical economic challenge. If women—who account for half the world’s working-age population—do not achieve their full economic potential, the global economy will suffer.

  • Women’s voices on teams…have been shown to increase emotional commitment, which leads teams to push harder for success. 

  • There is still a fear of bias and backlash from speaking up, and there is evidence that this fear is justified. 

  • And finally, if women are not reaching their full potential and growth; they will leave your organization.

  • “We have a strong instinct to belong to small groups defined by clear purpose and understanding--"tribes." This tribal connection has been largely lost in modern society, but regaining it may be the key to our psychological survival.” - Sebastian Junger, TRIBE On Homecoming and Belonging

" Inclusion is foremost about creating an environment where a diverse mix of people feel valued and succeed. Though a work environment may include a diverse group of employees; the workplace itself is oftentimes not wholly inclusive, especially for women who are not equipped or empowered with the skills needed to truly thrive within organizations.
Cyndie Spiegel, Women.Consulted.®
"Women today are trailblazers, they are more career ambitious and financially independent than ever before and they expect more form employers. Talking the talk is no longer enough. To attract and keep female talent, employers must be transparent about their commitment to diversity, their diversity progress and create an open and inclusive culture where women can thrive and reach their potential."
