This paper reports on a heuristic study with women in academia. Nine women collaborated as co-researchers to explore coaching women towards authenticity within higher education. The research was undertaken from a social constructionist perspective and used informal conversational interviews and thematic analysis. The findings suggest that coaching can provide support and contribute to women's development of authenticity. An area that can affect and influence women's authenticity is that of working in a safe environment.
