Helping executive women make strategic career moves and connect with companies who recognize their value.

The Mission

Safety. Support. Results. We're giving women at the top career control when they need it most.

Founded by Tracy Saunders, an executive recruiter and start-up CEO, along with several influential advisors at the world’s leading companies, BossmakeHer was created to connect executive women to companies outside of traditional networking and job boards.
It’s a new way of taking career control — in a discreet yet direct way. We’re shattering barriers created by the “old boys club” to create a sphere of influence designed to drive parity and close the gender leadership gap.

More than Job Coaching

Social networks are great but do they move the needle? Beyond inspiration, we provide tactical advice that allows women to explore what’s possible and gain more value in the market. And it all happens inside a private, women-only space sphere of influence.

THE team

With more than 50 years of combined expertise working with thousands of candidates,
you're in good hands.
