Sessions

With our breakout sessions, conference attendees can learn more about their particular topic of interest in a more intimate setting, allowing them to walk away with eye-opening knowledge that can aid them in their own personal journey to success.

  • Boundaries in Action: The Power of "No"

    Women are often called rude, selfish, bossy, or much worse when we tell someone no. However, as Brene Brown says, creating these boundaries allows for us to do more for ourselves and ultimately for others. Reserving our time, energy, and space for our safety, health, and general needs enables women to maintain a healthier, more satisfied self; therefore, our capacity and ability to help others will also be increased. This session will discuss how to protect our time, energy, and selves, and ultimately say no to things and people that do not serve our greater wellbeing.

  • Candid Advice from the C-Suite

  • Engaging Males as Allies

    Everyone must have a seat at the table for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts to succeed in the workplace. Although men hold the majority of business leadership roles and are in the best place to drive inclusion, they report feeling targeted by or left out of the diversity conversation. This session will cover how men can be an asset within the workforce, obstacles to their involvement, and best practices that will create an engaging environment to fuel the progression of gender equality.

  • Engaging White Males as Full Diversity Champions

    Everyone must have a seat at the table for D&I to succeed in the workplace. Although white men hold nearly 70% of business leadership roles and are in the best place to drive inclusion efforts, they are often targeted by or left out of the diversity conversation. This session covers why white men are vital to D&I efforts, obstacles to their involvement, and best practices in engaging white males in the D&I space.
