January 19, 2022 Here's what Tammy Gooler Loeb had to say about our conversation: The moment I met Judy Schoenberg and Linda Lautenberg, the co-founders of EvolveMe something clicked within me. It actually gave me goosebumps. I was inspired by the synchronicity of how they met, and the way they blended their strengths to create EvolveMe.
The impact they are having on the careers and lives of mid-career women is tremendous.
EvolveMe is a multi-faceted program for mid-career women who are re-entering the workforce in the social impact sector.
Linda and Judy developed EvolveMe’s proprietary DARE© Method of Career Reinvention to help cohorts of high achieving women attain clarity, gain confidence, and launch the best chapter of their professional lives. The organization’s values of collaboration, growth, change, optimism, and authenticity are threaded through all they do.
Combining their distinct backgrounds has been part of the secret sauce behind the success of EvolveMe. Judy is a former national executive for the Girl Scouts of the USA and Linda is a Chartered Financial Analyst. Prior to her own professional reinvention, she led a highly successful career in real estate finance and securitization.
Linda had stepped away from her career to raise her family and after several years wanted to focus on herself again. She knew that she needed structure to figure it out and found a program for women re-entering the workforce. There, she met Judy who had joined the program a few months earlier upon her own decision to return to the workforce.
Eventually, the agency overseeing the program asked Judy and Linda if they would take over the program to reinvent it. They worked so well together and determined that the need to support women in mid-life career transitions was so great, that they created EvolveMe.
In February 2022, EvolveMe is offering the 6th cohort of their signture program, the Reinvention Collective, a live 12-week, interactive virtual program with a group of women in midlife career transition, who are returning to work or pivoting careers. A few spots remain open. You can schedule a free 1:1 Breakthrough Session to see if it's a fit for you.
In this week’s Work From The Inside Out podcast, learn more about Linda and Judy’s journey.
The women they work with describe the EvolveMe experience as “the best professional decision they’ve ever made.” They have been featured in Forbes.com, CNN.com, Reuter’s World at Work, The Washington Post, at White House events, and in Fairygodboss.com and the Ellevate Network.
