Renee Jackson , Sr. Director of HR & Associate General Counsel (Employment) at Wish   "It took a lot of time and effort to build a network of people I trust for professional advice and support. The idea of creating that type of advice and support service for those who don't have the resources is so exciting to me. The fact that Empower Work is anonymous and seamless makes it even more compelling and useful."

Julie Lein , Managing Partner, Urban Innovation Fund   "Empower Work hits on an issue literally everyone has experienced, but felt incapable of solving (whether by virtue of workplace politics or lack of resources). It's refreshing to have an accessible and neutral place to share your workplace challenges."

Jennifer Habig Ph.D. , Managing Director at Center for Creative Leadership   "Everyone faces challenging situations at work and having a safe and confidential conversation can mean the difference between leaving a job or staying, feeling empowered or frustrated, and having hope or feeling like there are no options. That impacts the way people show up as employees, spouses, parents, and friends. I am excited about bringing coaching to more people in a new way!"
