Are you: A woman who currently holds or desires to hold a leadership role within a corporation or startup? A progressive millennial desiring to become an influencer, a transformational leader or social entrepreneur? Or maybe you’re simply an advocate for social change interested in eradicating women gender inequalities? Whichever category you fall in, WELCOME, the L3 Academy is for you – Ladies Leading and Loving It!


After spending the last 30 years working in corporations like IBM, Deloitte & Touch and Coca-Cola, founder Cheryl Cooper has experienced every discriminatory “ism” that could prevent her from excelling up the corporate latter and into the C-Suite. Her vast experience, both good and bad has given her the knowledge and compassion necessary to help other women along that same journey, hopefully with less opposition.

The L3 Academy is designed to close the opportunity gap for women of color (all women) who may not normally have access to high-level corporate leadership training that will grant them a seat at the table, originally reserved only for their white male counterparts. Through weekly inspiration and education, monthly training and masterminds, and quarterly special events, meetups and retreats – this program will address the unique needs of women in leadership and those desiring to uplevel their capabilities.


Executive Coaching

Cheryl is quiet in her approach, but forceful in her passion which allows her to ask the difficult questions, push for understanding and reveal the deepest level of truth that exists. With her, it is clear that you have an advocate, someone who believes in you, sometimes more than you believe in yourself.

Entrepreneurship Coaching

I am really great at what I do but now I’m really wanting to fully scale my business and grow to the next level up. Cheryl showed me some key strategies about how to build my team & scale my business up! She helped me see some of my business blind spots!

Executive/Life Coaching

Participating in this mastermind/leadership training helped me define my passion and a strategy for implementing it. I loved it so much that I decided to invest further in myself and hired Cheryl to become my Executive/Life Coach and boy am I glad I did.  The experience was transformative.  I now realize I’m in control of my destiny, as well as, recognize that I’m a leader even if I don’t wear a manager or director title in corporate America.

Thank you, Cheryl, for helping me put my dreams to the test and uplevel my leadership game!
