“I want to help women be able to see themselves as powerful wherever they are…to understand that they can be influential at every level.”

It takes a lot more than technical mastery to advance to the upper echelons of Corporate America. You also need to master the “softer skills, “—credibility, competence, professionalism and influence. Unfortunately, many early to mid-career professional women aren’t privy or, aware of the importance of these skills and are quite often stunned to find their careers flat-lined, despite their credentials, technical know how and tireless work ethic.

Cindy Pace is determined to change that. As a highly credentialed global talent & leadership development professional and women’s leadership thought leader, Cindy is the brainchild behind a national movement to empower a segment of the population that is far too often underrepresented among corporate executive ranks—Diverse Women. A group that is often excluded from formal networks, lacks mentors and has fewer access opportunities for higher-visibility assignments.

Drawing on fifteen years of global corporate experience in the biopharmaceutical industry (which includes working alongside international business professionals at all levels, key thought leaders, CEOs and senior executives), Cindy developed her deep knowledge and understanding of the importance of navigating complex, challenging and competitive work environments, as well as her philosophy for what it takes to get ahead.

A sought after speaker, coach, facilitator, moderator and strategist for early-to-mid-level diverse career women, Cindy’s philosophy includes empowering women to master their mindset or “inner game,” so they are in a position to navigate the corporate game. She believes if this doesn’t happen they are less likely to position themselves for the “big, bold opportunities.”By working with two distinct audiences (early and mid-career), Cindy provides actionable strategies and blueprints for both showing them exactly what it takes to excel where they are. Therefore, has designed a signature talk for each audience.
