From around the world, participants share their experience

One of our CIYO program alumnae, Christine Bader, published an OpEd in the New York Times in April 2018 titled The year I learned to quit - her wise words can be a source of reflection for each of us. What in our own lives requires some quiet, some space, some 'leaning out'?  

"The CIYO program is a fantastic opportunity to pause and reflect on various aspects of your life guided along by wise and inspiring women in a very safe environment."

UK Alumna

"CIYO is very special programme for women interested in self-reflection and a deeper knowing of living in power. This is a very timely program for all women who are looking for a shift in life and leadership."

JAPAN Alumna

“The WAOC is for women who are ready to empower themselves to lead changes in themselves, their teams or the organizations they are a part of. If you want to have more clarity and more agency in your life, the WAOC is the right masterclass for you.”

US Alumna

"This program allowed me time to refocus on: who and what shaped me, who I am, what I live, what I want. And to clarify the small steps, and next steps in life. I emerged energized, peaceful and confident as a leader and a wife."



"CIYO encourages openness and authenticity – providing a safe, supportive and open environment where women can shed their everyday role as mother, wife, daughter, boss or colleague.

I was able to see myself from the inside out vs. outside in, setting aside the perceptions of those I interact with on a daily basis.

There is tremendous power and insight that comes from being witnessed and witnessing others as the group provides the gifts of collective feedback, perspective, spirit and energy. My program experience helped me gain significant new perspective as I considered a major transition in my life."
