Partnering with women to create change


Founded on the belief in the capacity of women to be architects of change, SheChanges is all about creating the space for women to listen to and honor their instincts. It is a catalyst for women to take themselves—their lives, their organizations, their thoughts and experiences of the world—more seriously.

At the heart of SheChanges is Lael Couper Jepson, a seasoned boat rocker and a trusted guide who rides shotgun with women as they bring their thoughts, ideas, and perspectives to the foreground, their visions to fruition, and their impact to the moon. Women are drawn to SheChanges because the secret sauce resonates deeply with them, and invites them to keep it real, get to the heart of the matter, and be slightly irreverent in the process.

    SheSpeaks: Swagger

    Wondering what happened to SheSpeaks? I recently made aHUGE decisionto take a year hiatus from this ever-popular evening of women's storytelling so I can more fully channel my creative energies into writing my book. Hard, but right. Write. I'm happy to say that my book is almost done (or in my editor's gifted hands!). I'll be back next December with another, so save the date! More information

Inside My Creative Bubble

I recently made a series of disruptive decisions for me and my business designed to support one outcome: write a book. You can read more about the specifics of those decisions in my most recent blog post, but it involves me going off-line (and off stage) more for a spell so I can give birth to these words that have been living inside me. So beyond working one-on-one with my clients and my groups, that's where I'll be hanging out.
