Our Story

Founded in 2022, in response to a world in crisis, Yin Leadership Network's purpose is to give women a voice.  We are committed to helping women build, grow, and scale their online presence through self-expression. 

The Yin Leadership Network is the first community designed to help women find and express their voices, providing specialized paths and programs that empower them to make their mark.  We believe the world needs more female voices because it’s a better place when the feminine and masculine energies are in balance. This new balance will solve the planet’s biggest challenges.

Our Making

We originate from AcornOak, a marketplace for fractional executive women, founded in 2019 as a digital marketing agency to serve small businesses. Months before the Pandemic hit, the agency focused on its mission to help women of experience while supporting SMBs as fractional CMOs and outside digital marketing teams.

We experimented with a new distributed leadership model built on a cooperative format, advising clients and leading projects with a co-creative and improvisation-based approach.

Through the acquisition of significant learnings and experience building brand voice inside organizations, we witnessed a common market pain: the difficulty for women to voice their truth.

The Revolution is in the Voices of Women.

Our Yin Hosts

Our community empowers women by offering them a new leadership role as Yin hosts for each of the Yin programs.

Yin hosts are responsible for sharing news of the program on social media, as well as helping The Yin Leadership Network to find new members to join their cohort. They benefit from a new sustainable revenue source and have an opportunity to improve the living curriculum of the program.

As a result, Yin hosts become stakeholders and create sustainable income.
