Working with Linda, I not only accomplished my goals in less than a year, but I also made a shift in perspective and beliefs that will serve me for years to come. She was able to tailor each coaching session to my present needs and still keep focused on the bigger vision for the future.

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

The Cost of Our Lives is an immigrant daughter’s compassionate exploration of complicated inheritances. Using archival records and oral histories with her Colombian-Mexican family, Linda González untangles los engaños and the silences of her childhood to ultimately create a moving portrait of the complex family relations that shape a woman’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.
