Women Moving Forward®

This three day intensive program for women is the most powerful and confrontational workshop we do.  The Women Moving Forward® Workshop is 40+ years old.


Its’ purpose is: To have women get off their positions of powerlessness.

It does not matter what the positions of powerlessness are as long as the women who attend are serious about removing the barriers.

They also have to be willing to work long hours over the three days to get the job done.

Companies like McDonalds Corporation, Procter & Gamble, Hewlett Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Pepsi Co. and Coca-Cola Co. have all held Women Moving Forward Workshops for the women in their companies
