I’M  READY TO ELEVATE!

Calling all smart, savvy, ambitious BLACK WOMEN LEADERS who are tired of being Overworked, Overwhelmed & Underpaid

Join us for our 2nd Annual Strategize Your Way to Equal Pay Symposium. It’s a carefully curated experience for corporate and entrepreneruial black women leaders. It’s uniquely designed to give you a straight line to your next level so that you can secure YOUR SEAT and YOUR BAG in the form of Equity, Inclusion, and Agency! 

As a former HR Executive who has had the distinct advantage of sitting on both sides of the decision-making table, I know that our time to be paid for the value of our contribution is long overdue. I also understand the reality that not enough of us are invited into the rooms that teach the real mechanics of leading with impact, influence and authority.

These are the rooms that prepare us for taking our seats at the tables where HIGH STAKES CONVERSATIONS take place.

These also just happen to be the conversations that transform hearts, minds and YOUR bottom line.

Strategize Your Way to Equal Pay is that room!

It’s YOUR room.

The room where we focus on the solution not the problem so that you can crack your equal pay code and eliminate ever being treated like an easily replaced commodity again!

Yes, it’s true that leadership is our birth-right but… leaders of impact and influence aren’t born, they’re made.

I am a LEADER

I am a WELL-PAID LEADER.

We LOVE owning and stepping into the box on the left

but we unfortunately AREN’T INVITED into enough of the right rooms that help us become the leader on the right

In fact, it’s our #BlackGirlMagic that has us be known as the most educated and most ambitious women with the strongest work ethic and while that’s great, it also becomes our blind-spot because working incredibly hard is not enough to catalyze our leadership in a way that gets us recognized, respected and paid well.

In order for us to get paid for the full value of our contribution, there is a triple bottom line that must be met and it’s deeply hinged in our:

REPUTATION . RELATIONSHIPS . RESULTS

Our Reputation gets us access…

Our Relationships expand access…

Our Results get us paid well and positions us to ascend at an accelerated pace!

And even though Black women are the most educated group in the U.S., when that triple bottom line isn’t met, it leads to 44% of Black women feeling like their career is stalled.

This messes with our psyche and causes us to worry incessantly about some of the exact challenges that will be addressed as a part of this experience.

You should know that this experience is equal parts Heart & Strategy because you need both to thrive and succeed as a results-driven, Black Female Leader who also gets paid well.

It’s a fun, engaging day of deep thinking, transformational dialogue and relevant training designed to spur action and inspire you to say,

“What if…?”

Just imagine being in a room of purpose-driven, high-performing Black women leaders learning what it takes to level-up and lead in a way that positions you for your next bold move.

I’M  READY TO ELEVATE!

How the Day Unfolds…

We’ve purposefully curated an experience designed to disrupt any patterns of mediocre thinking by guiding you to breakthrough results in five core areas:

Communication, Negotiation, Relationships, Branding & Wealth Creation

These areas will be explored in the following ways:

We’ll also ensure your belly is nourished, you’re powered up and prepared to execute with a plan and we’ll extend invitation for you to continue the journey with us through our year-round Workshops, Masterclasses, Leadership Salons and Retreats!

YOUR HOST, FOUNDER OF THE BLACK WOMEN’S COLLECTIVE

Felicia’s public speaking appearances educate, engage and inspire women to fully step into their power as leaders. Named as a “Woman of Excellence” by the National Council of Negro Women, Felicia has personally worked with hundreds of women using her proprietary branding process to help them develop compelling communication and leadership skills that position them to be recognized, remembered and recommended for high-visibility projects!

SOME OF FELICIA’S CLIENTS

Prior to working with Felicia, I interviewed for my current job two times to no avail and when it came open again, I knew that I really needed to focus on clarifying my passion and skills. After just two Power Sessions with Felicia, I gained a better perspective on my goals and assets and was able to confidently secure my dream job!

Dr. Felicia Durden, Principal, Cartwright School District

I am so inspired by Felicia’s zeal, passion and strong commitment to women! I also appreciate the nurturing and support she has personally given me towards actualizing my dreams. She really put a fire underneath me to stop procrastinating and really go out and do what I say I am committed to

Vanessa Williams, Actress

Due to the power of this program, I am a proud alumni and happy to be returning to grow even more! Felicia has designed it to be a unique, interactive online experience that forces you to dig deep and look at yourself. It’s not for the faint of heart but I did finish my book and negotiate a pay increase the last time I participated! I re-enrolled because I had fallen off my wagon in some ways and had lost momentum and I’m so glad that I did. I now have a clearer idea of my personal brand story, the subtle nuances and changes in the story as a result of personal growth since the last time I participated and I have the tools I need to get focused on building my brand in a higher way as I head into 2017.

Tonika Breeden, Speaker & Author

Felicia’s words of wisdom and step-by-step systems have definitely inspired me to get into action and to lead with purpose! Putting what I learned to use has allowed me to survive 3 rounds of staffing cut-backs and increased leverage and influence within my company. The tools and strategies that Felicia provides helped me to stay focused, in action and getting results- at a much faster pace that I could have ever done on my own.

About This Experience and How It Works

Early in your career, you likely needed a lot of hands-on guidance and information. But as a more experienced and more accomplished leader, my guess is what you need now more than ever is dedicated time, a place and a framework for upleveling in a way that will set you up for success. And…doing it with a group of Black female leaders who will inspire you as much as you do them is like the icing on the cake!

With that in mind, this experience is not well-suited for everyone.

If you…

  • Require a lot of ‘hand-holding’ instead of engaging in elevated thought and conversation.
  • Aren’t willing to own your experience, remove your mask and play full out.
  • Are looking for formulas, templates and done-for-you anything.
  • Are resistant to bold, out-of-the-box thinking that requires you to leave your comfort zone

This experience will likely cause you more frustration as we’ll bump up against everything you aren’t ready to release.
