About Professor Maja

Professor Maja

Sociologist, professor, author, writer, apology-hater, confidence-builder and recovering make-up addict.

She currently teaches at McMaster University and Mohawk College, and is the CEO of “ALL IN” Inc., a women’s leadership organization that gives women the communication tools to speak up with confidence at work and get what they want in life.

Maja and her husband Steve are raising their daughter to be her own damn boss, who understands Barbie doesn’t need to be saved by Ken!

Early in the morning, you can find her working on her latest research project with a cup of Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea in hand. While Maja has perfected the art of boundaries with humans, she can never say no to her 180 lb Great Dane, Cooper. Her favourite kiss-proof lipstick is Play with Fire by Rimmel, she reads the dictionary for fun (no, really), and she hates apologies.

Her third book is coming out in late 2017. Stay tuned!

  • I am so glad I caught your interview on the social. Missed some of it but very inspiring. I’m going to purchase your book “Hey Ladies Stop Apologizing” for myself and my two granddaughters.

    • Hello Faye! Thank you for your interest in my work and for purchasing the book! The original book can be started at any point, begin anywhere you’d like, you can skip around from chapter to chapter. The 2nd book “Hey Ladies Stop Apologizing, THE WORKBOOK” is a guided journal with tons of exercises to walk you through step-by-step the process of building up your confidence. In-between the exercises I write a few pages talking about the sociological research on confidence, fear, perfectionism, etc. Enjoy! I wish you and your granddaughters confidence! (you can catch the full episode of my appearance on The Social, right here on my site, or on the Social’s website also). –Prof. Maja

  • Thanks for your workshop today at Mohawk College! It was a pleasure to meet you! We had a brief conversation and I’m really inspired. I am looking forward to read your blogs and possibly come to the club meetings at Mac and throw some ideas your way in regards to empowering female youth.
    Thanks for the books!

    • Thank you Janeil! Thank you for attending and for your support. I hope that you find the books useful. It’s a process that takes time…it takes time to change our mindset, to stop listening to the shitty committee in our minds, to refocus on the positive, to hustle(!), and to keep moving forward. It was a pleasure speaking with you after my talk this week.
