The Women Empowerment Series Features Inspiring Change Agents in Honor of International Women’s Day 2021!
In honor of International Women’s Day and the 2021 theme #ChoosetoChallenge, Missy Chicre, Dr. Kellie Lease Stecher and Kristi Hemmer will be featured guests in our upcoming series. These amazing women all have stories to tell. From launching a women mentoring men program, to advocating for equality in the healthcare profession to focusing on social entrepreneurship to build a business, they will all share their insight and experiences on how they use their voice to initiate change to forge a more gender equal world.
Women often are told (or feel) that they are too direct, aggressive, passive, lack confidence and need to speak up more in meetings. How do we avoid these labels and stereotypes in order to feel empowered, confident and be considered equal leaders in our organizations? Communication is key! The Women Empowerment Series will make you aware of your linguistic and communication styles and explore components to build confidence to empower you to make a difference within your organization.
In a series of three, 90-minute workshops (Feb. 25, Mar. 4 and Mar. 11) with plenty of time for great discussions and break-outs, women will explore their individual communication style and build an understanding of gender stereotypes and how these negatively impact workplace relationships. Non-verbal communication, body language and managing emotion will be discussed to propel our conversations forward and participants will delve into conversation rituals; a re-occurring pattern of conversation and behavior whose meaning, or function is not what it appears to be.
