About Christine

Corporate America sucks.
Change it, don't let it change you.

Christine Michel Carter knows what it’s like to battle ageism, racism, and sexism in the workplace. She knows what it’s like to work long hours, lead teams without management titles, and get paid less than male colleagues. She even knows what it’s like to interview while pregnant and pump in a bathroom stall.

It’s unfair, and it needs to stop.

Christine gets revenge as a protector and fighter for ignored women all over the world. She works to advance policies on a range of issues that affect families and women in financial, mental and emotional health spaces. She is an advisory board member of the Policy Center for Maternal Mental Health, received recognition from the City of Baltimore for her commitment to community service, and received a Congressional Citation from the U.S. Senate for going “above and beyond in ensuring that Black Moms and Moms of Color have access to important health information for their children and families.”

Because of her bold, disruptive delivery, Christine’s been called the “mother of LinkedIn” by the New York Post. She’s also been named a “career doula,” a “working mom who’s changing the world,” an “inspiring black mom to follow,” a “mom on the move,” an “inspiring, empowering millennial mother,” and the “voice of millennial moms.” Christine has been quoted, interviewed, and profiled by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, FOX, NBC, and many more.
