Project Description

***UPDATE JUNE 8, 2021***

Words cannot describe how ecstatic, shocked, humbled, and grateful I am for the groundswell of support that has poured in in support of the Embrace Change Leadership Accelerator for women of color.

I am so proud to say that the $36K already raised means we can now run 3 cohorts and support 30 women of color through the Leadership Accelerator! 

So let's shoot for the moon and launch a 4th cohort to support 10 additional women of color leaders into the leadership positions they need – and deserve – to be in!!

Thank you for joining me in this final push to champion 40 women of color to 10X their leadership!

Cynthia Pong Embrace Change Crowdfunding Campaign to launch Leadership Accelerator Program for Women of Color Leaders

 

Women Of Color Are Leading The Future Of Work

The problem is that, all too often, we aren’t seen as leaders – by others or ourselves.

Although 20% of the US population are women of color, only 1% of Fortune 500 CEOs are.

Even though we work as hard as – harder than! – others, we are paid less.

The pay and opportunity gap for women of color is huge and widens over the course of a career
Over the course of a 40-year career, Native women earn $1.7M less than White men, while Black, Latinx, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women earn about $1.3M less.

Representation And Pay Equity Matter 

Women of color across all ethnicities should be in top leadership roles across all sectors. We should also be paid equally for our labor.

Embrace Change's mission is to get all women of color the money, power, and respect that we deserve. Founder feminist career coach Cynthia Pong JD
#RepresentationMatters and women of color across all ethnicities should be in top leadership roles across all sectors.

Hi! I'm Cynthia Pong, the founder of Embrace Change.

With over a decade of experience negotiating – first as a public defender, now as an entrepreneur – my clients break down barriers in the workplace, whether they work in medicine, public health, the arts, social work, sustainability, or the trades.

My career advice has been featured in HuffPost, CNBC, Fast Company, Refinery29, NPR, and more, and I'm a LinkedIn Top Voice for Job Search and Career.

I am singularly focused on building a future in which women of color are treated equitably in the workplace.

What We Do

At Embrace Change, we provide the tailored resources, strategic support, and roadmap to leadership to make sure women of color thrive.

We advance the careers of women of color through strategic career coaching, tailored workshops and courses, a book on career change, and career advice shared on social media, in free resources, and in action-oriented talks.

We’ve coached hundreds of women of color to confidently advocate for themselves and reach hundreds of thousands with our career advice posts on social media.
We've coached and trained hundreds of women of color to confidently advocate for themselves and drive their careers forward. We reach hundreds of thousands through our career advice social media posts.

Embrace Change's mission is to get all women of color the money, power, and respect that we deserve. Founder feminist career coach Cynthia Pong JD

 

Now, We Need Your Help

We’re raising capital to fund a 12-week, high-impact, results-driven accelerator program to give 30 women of color leaders their own roadmap to leadership.

This accelerator will give participants:

  • a clear vision for their leadership and a strategy to get them there,
  • actionable tools and tactics to negotiate with confidence, and 
  • supportive and game-changing accountability

In other words, this accelerator will launch women of color into the leadership positions that they want – and need – to be in.

Cynthia Pong Embrace Change Crowdfunding Campaign to launch Leadership Accelerator Program for Women of Color Leaders

 

The money raised will also:

  • Launch women-of-color-owned businesses
  • Put copies of Cynthia’s book, Don’t Stay in Your Lane: The Career Change Guide for Women of Color, directly into the hands of women of color
  • Fund 1:1 coaching services on negotiation, resume writing, small business startup, and effective goal setting
  • Build more equitable workspaces within organizations
We’ve coached hundreds of women of color to confidently advocate for themselves and reach hundreds of thousands with our career advice posts on social media.
Help women of color leaders start their own businesses with our course Jumpstart Your Online Business and transform their careers with our career change guide, Don't Stay in Your Lane.

The Campaign FAQs

How will the money raised from this campaign be used?

Donations under the scholarship rewards (Help A WOC Start Their Online BusinessPay It Forward, Embrace Change Equity Champion, etc.) will be allocated specifically to pay for the tuition of women of color who need financial assistance. *If you'd like to contribute to a specific person's scholarship fund, please see How do I donate to a specific woman of color's scholarship fund?, below).

All other donations will go toward curriculum development and facilitation costs for 3 rounds of the Leadership Accelerator.

 

When will I receive my reward(s)?

Each type of reward will be fulfilled on a separate timeframe.

Donors who purchase specific rewards will receive information about the estimated delivery date for their reward(s) at the time of purchase.

More details regarding fulfillment will follow by email. Please keep your eye out for emails from cynthia@embracechange.nyc!

 

What do I do if I want to be in the Leadership Accelerator?

Yay! I'm so happy to hear that! If we haven't already talked about this, send me an email at cynthia@embracechange.nyc with more details about your situation and your level of interest and we can take it from there.

 

How do I donate to a specific woman of color's scholarship fund?

1. First, choose one of following rewards:

  • To contribute to the tuition of a woman of color for the Leadership Accelerator, select the Embrace Change Equity Champion or Pay It Forward reward.
  • To cover the tuition of a woman of color for the Jumpstart Your Online Business course, select the Help A WOC Start Their Business reward.
  • To partially cover the tuition of a woman of color for the either of the above with a dollar amount of your choice, please select the Monetary Contribution reward.

2. Then, during the checkout process, you will be prompted to enter a note. Please type in the name of the person whose scholarship you want to donate to in the note field. Your donation will be earmarked specifically for that woman of color's scholarship.

Thank you for investing in this woman of color leader!

 

Why are you crowdfunding for this?

I'm on a mission to close the opportunity and pay gaps for all women of color. One way in which I do this is by ensuring that women of color leaders have the skills they need in order to advance their own careers. Enter, the Leadership Accelerator!

At the same time, there are obviously many structural and institutional barriers that we face at every level. We can't expect to solve structural and institutional problems with individual solutions. However, we all have a role to play and this is my attempt to do my part.

Thank you for considering supporting this effort to build a better Future of Work for women of color everywhere!
