Emily is a rock star.

Emily Nagoski was so fun!! Her book and her teachings are SOOO important! Hearing her speak really solidified much of what I read in her book.

Outstanding lecture. One of the best lectures I’ve ever been to at a conference.

On no sleep and full of cortisol because of personal life stuff, I found myself 110% engaged, supported and informed. Emily is such a gift to our world.
