Join me on Thursday, September 23, 2021 from 9am - 1pm EDT to gather (virtually) with other women who - like you - are at the forefront of the movement as thought-leaders, founders, innovators, and investors where we will do the deep work of assessing the present moment, amplifying our most authentic voices, and charting the way forward.


I believe deeply in the truth of our feminine power. And I believe deeply that there are truths we don't discuss nearly enough.

If you are a woman making your mark in a male-dominated industry...

If you are part of the movement to advance opportunities for women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ communities...

If you have ever  felt your abilities undermined and underestimated because of your gender...

You're invited to an elevated conversation with women who challenge the status quo of their industries and their communities - not to mention their own.

This workshop + roundtable is sacred space to do the deep and often terrifying work of bringing forth our truth. I think we all know this work is best done in the company of other women. 

Join Stefanie Diaz for FORWARD: A Roundtable Workshop for Women Who Defy the Status Quo

As women, showing up in our fullest expression is like giving the answer when no one has asked the question.

And because our fullest expression is rarely requested or celebrated, there is an element of integration and authenticity that eludes many women, even at the highest levels.

Especially at the highest levels.

How do we show up fully in places that haven’t opened their arms to all that we offer?

Can we afford not to?

There’s something in you, and only you, that’s begging to come forward and be seen. Something that, despite all the strides you’ve made, has been left behind. 

“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”

- Meggan Watterson, Mary Magdalene Revealed

My style of leadership and coaching is more Women Who Run With the Wolves than Lean In.

Expect practice frameworks for revealing your authentic voice paired with deep work that reveals what has been waiting beneath the surface.

Because your depth is your secret weapon.

Here's a look at the journey we'll take during our time together.



The deep work that makes everything work.

You cannot empower others until you empower yourself. And, there is no self-empowerment when someone is running the show.

There is no graduation certificate for this step either. It is always present. Especially when your career continuously moves you out of your comfort zone.

Even the most successful women experience the ways the business world sets us up to feel less than.

Even the most successful women get overwhelmed by the haunted house inside their minds.

And the higher we climb, the less we feel safe admitting that things are wrong.

Which is why we begin our day with a roundtable discussion on what's not working - in your industry, in your community, in your business, in your life. If it's on your heart and weighing on your mind, release it.



When you are removed from your voice, you are removed from yourself.

Which is why after releasing what no longer serves us, we immediately get to work aligning with our most authentic and powerful voices.

As a public speaker myself, I've spent years coaching women to the full expression of their voices.

Our workshop expands into the situations we find ourselves in - meetings, networking, pitches, speeches, and social - to arm you with language and strategies for navigating them with confidence.

No more looking around to see how others are showing up in the world. In this collaborative experience, the entire group will reflect back to you the words and ways that you reveal your most powerful voice.

Expect to walk away with new language and power statements you can use immediately.



The system is broken.

Women operate inside it. We experience success within it. But we have yet to turn the corner of rejecting the broken elements we had to navigate to arrive at this place and claiming our fullest power. 

This is the place where:

... less than 8.1% of Fortune 500 companies are led by women CEOs.

... less than 3% of venture capital goes to women founders.

... only 14.3% of venture capital check writers are female.

We are a collective. We are individuals. Each with our own story. All experiencing resistance. 

When we bring our minds and hearts to the table, we can expect a groundbreaking conversation about how we measure progress and how we make it happen. 

“Women have a soul-need to express themselves.”

Meet Stefanie.

4x Founder. Public Speaker. Venture Capital Investor. Community Builder. Podcaster. Executive Coach.

How did I arrive in venture capital and executive coaching? Years spent focused on helping underrepresented entrepreneurs find their voices, underscored by my expertise in entrepreneurship and investing.

Since 2007, I’ve been scaling organizations to massive success, beginning with a pharmaceutical startup that we grew to over $100 million in 4 years.

In 2017, I began galvanizing unstoppable female founders through events and public speaking by launching one of Atlanta’s most dynamic and diverse communities for women, The Women Only Experience (WOE).

As Head of Investor Relations in a FinTech company, I’ve raised capital. As a Partner in Venture Capital, I helped drive seed-stage investment to underrepresented founders.

My story and powerful conversations with the women and allies impacting the flow of capital are on my podcast, She Conquers Capital.

These experiences and more earned me the distinction of being named an "Atlanta Startup Wonder Woman."

This is the voice I bring to women dedicated to forcing male-dominated industries to do better.
