Catherine St-Laurent and Rebecca Rottenberg Goldman believe that courageous choices are rewarded. This ethos has inspired their extraordinary societal contributions. Catherine’s as the Chief of Staff to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Executive Director of Archewell Foundation, and previously at Pivotal Ventures and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Rebecca’s in helping found and lead Endeavor Global, Katie McGrath and JJ Abrams Family Foundation, Good Robot, and Time’s Up. Today, at their social impact firm, Acora Partners, they continue to design lives of impact by pursuing learning over mastery.
Community is a pillar for both Catherine and Rebecca. They illuminate the link between presence and potential in relationships and the transformative power of women coming together, both in impacting change and journeying through life.
Intentionality in life and work contributes to a sense of fullness. Still, it leaves many of us striving to be there for everyone at once. Catherine and Rebecca share how aspiring for work-life blend, rather than balance, frees them to embrace their multitudes and show up as their full selves.
