ABOUT CLAUDIA

As a culture change expert and futurist, the creator of the award-winning S.H.E. Summit™, a NY-Times celebrated author of This Is How We Rise, a UN Women Champion of Innovation, and a global leadership speaker, coach and advisor, Claudia Chan (She/Her/Hers) awakens and coaches leaders and Fortune 500 companies to make their highest impact in the workplace and the world.

Through her proven How We Rise curriculum and her passion for solving complex culture problems, Claudia designs powerful and safe learning spaces that pull leaders and organizations toward their highest potential of social, business and talent innovation. Her unique framework helps clients elevate the vision for who they are becoming, identify their highest visions and transform their deepest challenges and differences to create thriving cultures of wellbeing, belonging and performance.

Claudia is also a believer, wife and mother of two.

TRANSFORMING CULTURES THROUGH
THE TRANSFORMATION OF PEOPLE

We are in an unprecedented time to re-imagine and create new business, culture and family systems that were never originally set up for all people to experience equity, inclusion and whole-life wellbeing. For decades, institutions have used Band-Aid approaches to mend systemically broken cultures that have required healing from the root.

After 20 years of leadership innovation work and researching workplaces and family systems, Claudia realized the key to transforming organizational cultures from the root lies in transforming key populations of talent and awakening a deeper sense of their purpose and identity. In 2017, she wrote the NY Times celebrated book This Is How We Rise — to call on and inspire new generation leaders, and she created the Whole-Life Leadership Framework™ helping people reframe how they lead in health, family, career, workplace, and community.

HOW WE RISE, A WHOLE-LIFE LEADERSHIP FRAMEWORK

Guided by purpose, inclusion and well-being, Claudia’s framework has convened, educated and activated tens of thousands to create cultures for whole-being success and belonging—where Claudia believes the true innovation for businesses lie.

PROBLEMS CLAUDIA HAS HELPED SOLVE:

ORGANIZATIONAL STRATEGY

  • CEO/C-suite leadership team often lack the personal story and vision--powerful enough to achieve cohesive innovation, and to become the industry leaders they want to be

  • Initiatives are outsourced to often overworked volunteers and DEI leaders who lack the influence to affect systemic change--during a “war on talent” era, leading to retention problems

  • DEI, corporate responsibility, ESG, L&D often lack cohesion, alignment and effectiveness as a whole sustainability and ESG platform

  • Employee resource groups models are often archaic, lacking in resources and innovation

  • Supply chain diversity programs are just getting started or lack education, expertise and innovation

EMPLOYEE LEVEL

  • Lack of engagement and mobilization of groups who are resistant to change or over-extended

  • Supporting diverse populations, especially women in male dominated functions, or POC shouldering as the “few or only” in the room

  • Lack of allyship by managers to create spaces of belonging and tools for their team

  • Inclusion & equity training for leaders to communicate with greatest understanding in today’s social and racial injustice landscape

  • The invisible barriers that face women and caregivers in the future of work

Impact Ripple Effect of Leaders

After two decades building equitable and inclusive cultures for companies like Moody’s, Disney, Google — what I find most effective and powerful about Claudia is that her programs help talent reset their careers as powerful vehicles for impact, and increase their passion and engagement with organizational initiatives in a format that is inspiring, practical and holistic. I speak at and attend conferences and learning programs regularly and I have found her content library and network to be some of the most compelling.”

Daisy Auger Dominguez

“Claudia Chan is a total life transformation tornado. She takes high-order observations and applies them in a practical way, delivering a rare combination of ruthless honesty and compassion. At a time when humanity has been traded for tech, she has infused spirit and soul back into work. I would not be becoming the woman I am without her coaching.”

Kathleen Griffith

Your presentation at the ESPN ERG Consortium was absolutely life changing. I needed to hear what you presented in so many ways.”

Jon Mcleod
Co-Chairman of ESPN T.R.U.S.T. (first ever Mental Health Affinity Group at ESPN)

Pepsico has been trying to solve work-life balance challenges with our female population for decades. Your How We Rise framework of creating cultures for whole-life wellbeing is what we’ve been waiting for.”

Monique E. Lanaux
Sr. Director, Global Diversity & Engagement, Pepsico

Meeting Claudia was such a blessing and lifeline as it validated that I wasn’t crazy, that I was hitting up on the system, and it wasn’t me. I wasn’t the problem. Claudia was the first woman who entered my tribe in bettering the landscape for women of color. Her coaching gift is helping people see their light especially when they are in structures that dim them. Through her energy, Claudia breeds change agents, which the world needs more than ever.”

Deepa Purushothaman
Former National Managing Principal, Inclusion at Deloitte; Author of The Firsts, The Fews and the Onlys: Why Women of Color Need to Redefine Power in Corporate America (launching Mar 2022)

Reading Claudia’s book This Is How We Rise gave me confidence to lead our new women’s employee resource group at Samsung. The book helped give me perspective that my life struggles and career challenges were for a greater purpose to help lead others towards achieving workplace equality. The S.H.E. Summit™ conference and How We Rise learnings helped me pave my path from Director of Solutions & Services to Samsung’s Inclusion & Diversity Leader. Everyone can make a difference, just take the first step forward.”

Tami DeWeese
Head of Inclusion & Diversity, Samsung Electronics America

At this critical time, we need leaders who are empathetic and compassionate. This is the first curriculum I took that truly embraces holistic leadership that creates the foundation for diversity and inclusion to be successful. Not a lot of people have the gift of tapping into the heart, mind, body and soul — that is what Claudia’s “whole-life” approach is. If you are looking to transform yourself and your company’s culture, invest in this program.”

Christine Ramsay
Neurodiversity Expert; Global Sr Manager Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Engagement, Jazz Pharmaceuticals

S.H.E. Summit™ has been instrumental in launching Prudential’s women’s initiatives. We used it to launch our #OwnMyFuture initiative and we were overwhelmed by the success as it gave us a platform to involve and get buy-in from senior executives. #OwnMyFuture is now a company wide effort stemming from our partnership with S.H.E. Summit™.”

Claudia you pulled me towards the highest vision of what I so wanted to impact but couldn’t put language to. You are the “Wizard of Oz” for me, thank you.”
