This is the Men's version of WMF®

Men all over the world have taken this workshop and have been surprised by the results.

The cost:

$40,000 for up to 14 men

We strongly recommend
this workshop be done in locations and
companies where WMF® has been held.

If you only continue to train women but do not also re-train men you just make women more frustrated.




24 Women Moving Forward® Graduates and their networks contributed 7000+ items for the detainees at
the Bakersfield Immigration Detention Center.
Here is a thank you from the Chaplain at the Center:

I am truly overwhelmed by your generosity,

Thank You!

At a time when the world has witnessed so much violence and man's inhumanity to mankind, it is so refreshing and inspirational to see people truly care about others who are in crisis.

God bless you every one.

Sincerely, Chaplain Tracy Hale



Thank you Grads! You have saved so many lives and given hope to
so many!

Honoring the Nike Women 

The Week magazine reported that: "Nike has apologized for

missing signs of discontent among female staff"
and boy did they miss the "signs of discontent" BIG TIME! 

What happened inside Nike that they have done an "internal
review"  that has resulted in 7000+ employees getting a raise
because they were the victims of "workplace misconduct and
discrimination against women"?

Yes you heard me right, a group of women inside the Beaverton,
Ore. headquarters started a revolt.

Covertly they surveyed their female peers, asking if they had
been sexually harassed or discriminated against because of

On March 5 the packet of Q's was handed over to Nike's CEO,
Mark Parker.

Over the next month over 6 top level male executives have left
Nike. As more employees come forward, emboldened by the actions
of the Nike Women revolutionaries, Nike has begun to change their
HR operations.

While, yes, Nike needed to and needs to take drastic steps to
stop all forms of discrimination I want to focus on the bravery
of the women at Nike who accomplished making this behavior
public so it could be addressed.

The ability to do something that frightens one
Strength in the face of pain or grief

These women did what I have rarely seen since the 60's,

they came together and risked their jobs and careers for
the greater good.

For years many women made the appropriate complaints but
to no avail. They were never acted upon or, in some cases, hidden.
It took a revolt by the brave to force the changes.

Thank you women of Nike for showing us all what Courage
and Selflessness looks like in the face of great pain & grief.

As always let me know what you think,
