Morning Session - Empowering Women to Be Their Best Selves in Leadership
Lisa Schaefer, John Maxwell Certified Coach
Women make up about half of the workforce, but only a small fraction holds leadership positions. Have you ever asked yourself, “What is holding me back from becoming my best self?” Have you often wondered if you were enough? Are you letting your inner dialogue keep you stuck? It’s time to lean in to your awesomeness. This is an interactive, discussion-based learning session, with questions relating to experiences from women in leadership. As we discuss the importance of overcoming imposter syndrome, we will discuss ways to be more assertive, and to gain confidence in your strengths so you can become your best self in leadership!
Afternoon Session - Hear You Roar, See You Roar
Sarika Bhakta, Certified Diversity Executive
Unleash the authentic diverse leader in you! We are all diverse and can lead at any level at all phases of our lives. This presentation will inspire attendees of all ages to self-reflect on their purpose, values, relationships and what they want their legacy to be as we explore the 3CCs (cultural chains, corporate chains, and community chains). How one should courageously “roar” to reinvent oneself to lead authentically, especially in the face of adversity. When you can be your unique self, it emboldens you to empower others while modeling the way to “soar” as a change agent making impact in your life, school, work and global community. Hear you roar, see you roar!
