Linda was an excellent coach to alumni of Windcall, a leadership resiliency program for community and labor organizers. I consistently received great feedback on her work and heard her in action myself conducting coaching “sampler” sessions on our program orientation calls. She is warm, supportive and concrete all at the same time.

Book Reviews: Breaking Through Your Own Glass Ceiling

We are so fortunate that Linda González took the time to collect and curate the wisdom from her decades-long coaching practice into this small and powerful volume. With clarity and precision, González names the many challenges facing women and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) who live and work under the systemic oppression of racism, sexism, homophobia, capitalism and white supremacy. With great compassion, she invites and encourages women and BIPOC to live with purpose as they come to know and learn to break through their own glass ceilings. She emphasizes this is the “critical internal work to be able to challenge these external barriers.” Breaking Through Your Own Glass Ceiling is career guidance with a self-care program that acknowledges the internalized ideas and behaviors that are created and perpetuated by oppressive systems, structures, and institutions. Linda’s uniquely valuable approach to embracing a full-hearted life is the hammer we need to break through.

Book reviews: The Cost of our Lives

With grace, clarity, and compassion, Linda González traces a life that is part of a complicated family tree that includes her father’s other wife and children, an emotionally distant and stubborn mother, her own siblings, and eventually a woman with whom she will start a family. Where avoidance of the truth often filled her childhood with confusion, González tears down the walls of denial to bring forth an honest and powerful memoir of one Latina’s life.”

Public Speaking

Linda González spoke at Mission College on Cross cultural solidarity and about the life and lessons of César Chavez.  Linda is a dynamic speaker with an expertise in supporting BIPOC (Black, Indegenous, and People of Color) and other underrepresented communities.  Linda is also very knowledgeable on social justice issues and provided great depth to the conversation on racial equity. In addition, she provided a calm meditation which helped the audience to be focused and engaged. I would definitely recommend Linda for your next speaking engagement.
