Speak Up and use your voice to create change where change is necessary.

April 1st, 8:30am EST

Joanna Lovering

Founder, Copper + Rise

Joanna is an executive presence coach, workplace psychologist, and fashion stylist who helps primarily women develop transformative leadership skills. Using her engaging and approachable method, Joanna teaches women how to show up with character, confidence, and style.

Joanna earned her M.A. in Social-Organizational Psychology from Columbia University before taking on leadership development roles at Tiffany & Co., JetBlue, and Daily Burn, among others. After accumulating over ten years of leadership development experience in a mix of corporate and start-up settings, she founded Copper + Rise in 2017.

Joanna founded Copper + Rise to teach women what no one teaches them about leadership. Over the years, she’s realized that leveling up in your career isn’t just about what you know. We also have to look, speak, and act like leaders–and that’s where executive presence comes in. Joanna defines executive presence as how you speak, how you act, and how you look. It’s the style and substance of who you are. Joanna’s background in psychology, leadership development, and fashion styling is the trifecta she brings to this work.

Joanna’s writing and insights on leadership, presence, and style have been featured in RealSimple, Fast Company, HerMoney, HuffPost, The Muse, Glassdoor, Fairygodboss, TheLadders, and more.
