Women – Change – Leadership: A special workshop for women in celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD).
It’s time to start a new conversation – to combine the creative energies of all women who want to create change for the common good.
“Women hold up half the sky” – Mao Zedung
“Women are leaders everywhere you look—from the CEO who runs a Fortune 500 company to the housewife who raises her children and heads her household. Our country was built by strong women, and we will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes.” – Nancy Pelosi
“We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.” – Beyoncé
“Leadership style varies from one person to another depending on their chosen fields, differing attributes and preferences. For women, it is their capacity to influence that makes them wonderful leaders.” – Isabel Myers-Briggs
“We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored.” – Sheryl Sandberg
Imagine a world where the highest qualities of women’s leadership are evident in all walks of life, work, and the community. What would that world look like? How can women’s leadership contribute and positively impact on social change and help to create a better world?
Examine your own experience of the qualities women bring to leadership and the difference these can make. Discover the changes you wish to make in your own life when you are called upon to lead, or simply identify areas where you can show your best qualities in a given situation.
The world needs all women to show how they can effect change that benefits all. Start the conversation with your women’s networks and groups; visit Head for Change and join the special Appreciative inquiry promotional workshop on this topic to learn how.
