Women Courageous Workshop


There are so many questions women face as they continue to navigate their place in leadership. Through this workshop we will explore the Why? How? When? and Who? through the sharing of stories and active brainstorming and group discussion.

It is known that Women leaders encounter unique challenges and opportunities that are different than those experienced by men, in the workplace. This three-hour workshop focuses on women leaders from diverse sectors who will share their stories of leadership, development, growth, and advancement.

While the focus is on women, men are invited and encouraged to attend as this shift in mindset needs to happen for both genders in order to really to make a difference.

Come enjoy an evening of networking, resources and inspiration. Find out how women are navigating the challenges they are faced with, what resources have enabled them to prevail, and how they are thriving in leadership.
