The Power of WE: Connections, Collaboration and Community

January 11 | 7:30-9:30 am

To amplify other women, we must first make connections that go beyond networking. Deeper connections lead to opportunities for collaboration. Women thrive when sharing ideas and working together. The foundation of community in business and in life is women, and empowered women create empowering communities.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to strengthen relationships with women peers
  • The power of being a part of the “new girls club”
  • How to recognize unconscious bias among ourselves and others
  • The importance of finding your tribe and being a part of a pack
  • How WE rise together as a community
