We are Women at Work
Women at Work is a resource center for working women and a platform for frank, meaningful, and thought-provoking guidance about topics that can make or break our careers. While there’s no shortage of advice out there, many of the factors that are critical to our success—men and gender dynamics, appearance and personal brand, pregnancy and parenting—are often avoided and sometimes considered taboo.
We created Women at Work to take on these topics head-on and provide concrete, actionable information. Our goal is to support women of all ages and in all phases of their careers with candid advice and an open exchange that can be hard to find. So if you’re looking for an honest, direct conversation about the issues that matter to your day-to-day work and broader journey, you’ve come to the right place.
Christina Van Houten
Writer & Founder
Christina started Women at Work to celebrate her 50th birthday and the amazing opportunities and experiences that work has given her. As she matured in her career, Christina enjoyed how women increasingly sought her out for guidance and mentorship. Through those interactions, she saw the need for a platform of practical, actionable resources and advice on topics that can drive our success and happiness. Originally from Oklahoma and now based in Boston, Christina’s long-time career has been diverse and random—spanning tech, fashion, and public interest—yet has made perfect sense to her and all worked out in the end.
