Episode 77: Cindy Tortorici on Entrepreneurship, Community Building and Feminism


Today's episode is an incredibly rich conversation with my friend and Superwoman Summit speaker, Cindy Tortorici. 

Cindy is a Business Consultant, Executive Coach, and Entrepreneur who specializes in inspiring leaders to combine their passion and purpose to get results. After a corporate career as a business strategist and executive for Nike Inc, Saks Fifth Avenue and May Company, Cindy followed her muse and created The Link For Women, LLC in 2004.

“The Link” is a company that connects and mentors women from all walks of life by providing business consulting, executive coaching, seminars and events that provide knowledge to make informed decisions and inspiration to think beyond today. Cindy is a member of The Creating WE Institute (www.creatingweinstitute.com) and partners with The Hyatt Leadership Forum (www.carolehyatt.com). She works with a cutting edge team of experts who support women to flourish at their "Seat at the Table'. (http://www.thelinkllc.com/for-you/a-seat-at-the-table).

Cindy has been acknowledged as a Woman of Influence by the Portland Business Journal and One of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Town by the NW Women's Journal. 

A social entrepreneur, she has also been honored as the Volunteer of the Year for Girls Inc. of the Pacific NW where she was a Board member and the interim Executive Director and remains as an advisor. Cindy is a Board member and has been an Ambassador for The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. Tortorici was a Trustee for Oregon Ballet Theatre for 9 years and Jamii Moja for 3 years.
