I HELP QUEER FOLKS TO BUILD

RADICAL LEADERSHIP CONFIDENCE

SO THAT THEY CAN CREATE POWERFUL CHANGE IN THE WORLD.

Hi! I'm Liz! (they/she)

I’m a white, antiracist, queer/genderqueer femme currently living and working on Dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish) land (known as Seattle).

Here are three truths that inform how I coach:

  • Queer and trans folks carry powerful magic, and the capacity to create radical transformation.

  • You are inherently brilliant, and the best solutions to your leadership challenges are to be found in deep knowledge of and appreciation for yourself.

  • Heteropatriarchal white supremacy culture is the genesis of queer and transphobia. We must disrupt it within ourselves and our work at every turn.

I am an eternal optimist, a queer leadership fanatic, a frequent teller of not-that-funny jokes, a lifelong artist (current love: watercolor), relentlessly curious, a deep empath, and despite all outward appearances, definitely an introvert.

"Liz has put together something very special here. This program has given me tools and insights to fundamentally shift how I show up as a leader of teams and a leader of organization. I'm already seeing the impact, and I've rediscovered why I wanted to become a manager in the first place. If you are looking for a way to reconnect with that early career zeal with a fresh new lens on what nourishes you, then this is the program for you!"
