Creating awareness, building communities and providing resources for women who are the sole or primary earners for their households.
Hi, I’m Bethanie.
I’m a tireless women’s advocate and recognized leader on the topic of breadwinning women. As a proud breadwinning woman myself, I was shocked at the lack of in-depth and engaging resources, as well as the general negative sentiment surrounding this role. Over the past several years, I’ve embarked on a journey to shed a positive and motivating light on the complexities of this role. Breadwinning women are a growing segment of our society with a multitude of unique circumstances, both inside and outside the home. To date, this has been a silent community that I’m passionate about giving a voice to.
Are you ready to break through the stereotypes about breadwinning women, together?

Compelling advocate for awareness, change and growth
My mission is to create awareness, build community and provide resources for women who are the sole or primary earners for their households, regardless of the makeup of that household. In early 2019, I created the Breadwinning Women of Google community which has grown to over 2000 women in over 20 countries. In building this community, I have honed a thoughtful and candid approach to supporting breadwinning women while engaging supportive individual allies and organizations alike. Additionally, I have decades of experience in topics surrounding women in the workplace, women in leadership, career guidance, company culture and the tech industry.
What makes a breadwinner?
Women identify as her households breadwinner whether she is the sole or primary earner for her household; whether she is single or partnered, a mother or child-free, part of a dual-income household or has a stay at home partner, in a same-sex or hetero relationship, caring for elderly parents, extended family members, or any other household setup.
