Christine Michel Carter knows what it’s like to battle ageism, racism, and sexism in the workplace.

Christine gets revenge as a protector and fighter for ignored women. She works to advance policies on a range of issues that affect families and women in mental and emotional health spaces. She is an advisory board member of Mom Congress 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.”

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.”
In addition to the below, Christine serves on the Advocacy Council for the PepsiCo Pure Leaf “No” Grants program, which allows women to say no at work without the negative outcomes that sometimes come with it.
