Claudia Chan


Claudia’s movement today is addressing the emotional labor crisis of working women and mothers. She believes though women have made advancements in business and leadership, their success has been built on burn-out not wellbeing. Balancing the productivity needs of employers with the mountain of family and household responsibilities is at the heart of the crisis. She has launched Claudia Chan’s Inner Circle where she coaches a proprietary framework "Whole-Self Power" that helps women recalibrate their mindset and work-family organization to lead with more authenticity and ease. As a 48-year-old wife and working mother of 2, her greatest passion is coaching women and organizations to lead with humanity at the center and source of innovation and performance. Claudia has spent 20+ years building platforms and programs specifically for women and to better the cultures they work and live in. Claudia is the creator of their award-winning leadership virtual conference S.H.E. Summit (standing for SHE, HE & EQUITY FOR ALL) which has equipped over 10,000 women with stories and strategies for empowerment from over 600 of the most renowned speakers, authors, experts and leaders. Claudia is also author of the NY Times celebrated leadership book THIS IS HOW WE RISE: Reach Your Highest Potential, Empower Women, Lead Change in the World. Over 400 cross-industry companies spanning from Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Samsung, Bacardi, Home Depot, to Target have provided their talent and teams S.H.E.
