Organization Stories

Some of the organizations that have used Living Proof Advocacy™ coaching to build teams and strengthen their advocacy.

womenheart: the national coalition for women with heart disease

Each year, 30 to 60 women with heart disease attend a WomenHeart symposium at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where they learn how to share their stories as WomenHeart Champions in the fight against heart disease. Since the first symposium more than 15 years ago, we have teamed with WomenHeart to bring Living Proof Advocacy principles to their work … preparing more than 800 champions nationwide. Learn more.

the stability network

The Stability Network aims to “redefine the mental health narrative, one story at a time.” It does so with a growing team of Stability Network Leaders across the U.S. and Canada. These leaders—all of whom are in the workforce and openly share their own mental health stories—inspire hope among those who struggle with mental health conditions. They also instill confidence among employers. To increase the effectiveness of these leaders, The Stability Network has engaged Living Proof Advocacy consulting services, offered customized workshops and a coaching program, and certified three of their members in LPA coaching skills.. Learn more.

the national safety council

As author Mary Pipher once noted, “Life itself assigns us our causes.” Nowhere is this more evident than in the National Safety Council’s Survivor Advocacy Program, which provides Living Proof Advocacy coaching to men and women, many of whose lives have been forever changed by the death of a loved one. Navigating personal stories that originate in extreme trauma, loss and pain, these survivor advocates learn how to link their experiences to important messages about distracted driving and opioid abuse so that their stories transform from tragic evidence to positive advocacy.
