She Roars is a thought leadership program designed specifically to help women working in social change become thought leaders, by harnessing their ideas and expertise.

The Master Class, led by Wakeman CEO, Vanessa Wakeman, will work together over 8 weeks, to design your thought leadership platform. You will work alongside a community of women change makers, like you, who are ready to take those next steps in owning their voice and sharing their body of work. This will be a transformational experience, as we move through strategy and mindset blocks, to clarity and action. This program provides you with live group coaching and workshops, strategic mentoring and tactical planning. 

Our Master Class includes:

  • 4 1-hour live Q&A calls.

  • 2 Strategic Planning sessions.

  • 2 Mastermind Breakout sessions (these sessions will be designed based on specific feedback from you, and the areas of support you need during the program.)

  • Templates and checklists, to keep you organized and building your platform.

  • 2 Progress Calls (one in January and one in February,) to share the status of your efforts, and receive guidance for next steps.

  • Access to the 8 weekly training modules, described below.
