15 Female Virtual Mentors (Tony Robbins, Take Note)

I recently read a blog post where a man thanked his virtual mentors - people he follows online for advice but doesn't know personally. He mentioned Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Tim Ferriss, Robert Greene and Seth Godin.


Not one woman was mentioned. At first I was annoyed, but then I realized the only virtual mentors I could name were business women like Sheryl Sandberg. Coming up with female motivational speakers who serve as virtual mentors was a big struggle for me.

So I went to the Facebook group I admin called “Ladies Promoting Ladies" and started a post to ask women members who they consider to be their virtual mentors. Who do they get advice and feel motivated by? Who do they regularly read, watch and bookmark? Some women mentioned motivational speakers and psychologists and others mentioned women they know personally. This list is a mix of women who may consider themselves virtual mentors and women who aren't doing it officially, but they're certainly inspiring others.

The answers came in fast. I want to keep adding to the list - so let me know who should be on here by posting in the comments section.

And thanks to Rachel Valdez (formerly PowerToFly's Head of Talent); Tamara Valdez; Christina Wallace (VP Growth, Bionic) , Susan McPherson (Founder + CEO of McPherson Strategies); Jenna Abdou (Host and Producer, 33Voices), Adda Birnir (Founder and CEO of Skillcrush) and Caroline Turner (formerly PowerToFly's CRO) for contributing and providing the following descriptions that I tweaked a bit.

Here's the list (so far):

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

LGBTQIA+ Inclusion In The Workplace

As we celebrate Pride this month, we should also take time to reflect about the practices— or lack thereof— at our companies that help to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community all year round. (LGBTQIA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual. There are other variants of this acronym such as LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQQIP2SAA, which all refer to the same community.)

From the Stonewall Uprising to the United States' Equality Act, we've come a long way, but the staggering statistics around the LGBTQIA+ community in the workplace tell us that there is still work to be done.
