Women leaders helping women leaders thrive.
Kamilah Martin, Founder & CEO
" I left a Vice President role of a prestigious international NGO once it became clear that having a title did not equal having a valued, independent voice. I knew I could have a much greater impact using my experience and expertise to support leaders whose lived values more closely mirrored mine. I built a team of women and mothers who wanted to use their lives to do good—and to help others in leadership roles at their organizations succeed in their efforts to do good."
