Each year, Courtney speaks on topics such as activism, diversity, feminism, perfectionism, politics, sexism, social justice, storytelling, and youth culture at colleges, universities, parenting organizations, nonprofits, and other events across the country.

Select past venues have included TEDWomen, The Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society, Harvard University, Princeton University, Goshen College, University of Missouri-Kansas City, George Washington University, Texas Christian University, The Omega Institute, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine, The Alice Paul Institute, The Roosevelt Institution, The Journalism & Women’s Symposium, and The 92nd Street Y-Makor and 92Y Tribeca.

“Rather than telling a lecture hall full of people what they already knew, Courtney made her work relevant to our campus and everyone in the room. Weeks later, people are still talking and the effects of her visit can be heard in classrooms, club meetings, and in dialogues between students and faculty.”
Carly Goldstein, Skidmore student

“Courtney speaks with prophetic wisdom, candor, and power about issues many of us feel burdened by but have not yet ‘languaged.’ She is a brilliant speaker, who can challenge deeply held and unexamined assumptions about the meaning of success, beauty, and wealth.”
Selena Sermeno, PhD, Ambassadorial Chair, United World College-USA Bartos Institute
