ABOUT

GrowGREETINGS! I’m Ann Daly PhD, the executive coach behind Women Advance.

After spending my entire professional life advocating for the success and advancement of women, I’m really excited to be bringing my mission online.

My philosophy for Women Advance, after years coaching executive women one-on-one, is this: Let’s bring together the collective of wisdom to share our success secrets, inspiring stories, and step-by-step strategies. The stronger we are together, the quicker we’ll all move forward!

Women Advance brings together everything I’ve learned from coaching, teaching, and research. I understand how women like to learn, what challenges they face, and why they get stuck. The result? Women Advance is the place where you’ll sharpen your competitive edge, expand your confidence, and strategize for success.

WOMEN ARE MY FOCUS / I spent 17 years as a women’s studies professor at The University of Texas at Austin before launching my coaching practice. Now I use my educational and coaching expertise to advance women in the workplace.

How many ways can I say that you are FABULOUS? Having you as a coach has been one of the best investments I’ve made in myself and my career. Your insight, experience, and humor have helped me to find the clarity and confidence to put plans into action. What a difference from where I started. — Toni R.

I’ve coached women at organizations including IBM, Oracle, Stanford University, Greenberg Traurig LLP, First Republic Bank, United Way, and Seton Healthcare.

I’m the award-winning author of six books, including Do-Over! How Women Are Reinventing Their Lives. A blogger for the Huffington Post, I’ve written for MariaShriver.com and TheGlassHammer.com. And you may have seen me featured nationally on ForbesWoman, BusinessInsider, WomenEntrepreneur, LittlePINKBook, and Oprah & Friends’ “Peter Walsh” Show.
