movement, mindfulness, & mission
movement, mindfulness, & mission is a chic women's personal and professional development event, co-led with Megan Betterman, weaving movement, mindfulness, and mission for an interactive, half-day workshop.
During this event, plan to find focus for next steps in your career and personal life, determine your personal leadership style and strengths, gain confidence, and tap into your influence as a leader. It is a day of learning, growth, exploration, conversation, sisterhood and community. Think of it as part retreat, part leadership seminar, and part brunch gathering with some of the most inspiring ladies around.
This is a professional workshop where yoga pants are encouraged! The experience will include a nourishing and largely organic brunch along with local coffee and tea. We carefully selected the venue to offer a space that not only supports learning, but also deep connection, conversation, inspiration, and wellbeing.
This is not a typical leadership conference. There will be no powerpoint presentations. There will be no theater style seating in a cold, dark room. Instead, this is a nourishing, empowering, and intimate experience for women who are interested in a whole-person, whole-body look at what it means to live well and lead powerfully. We can't wait to see you on September 29th.
outcomes for you
This event is an opportunity to step out of the heads-down hustle of everyday life. It's a chance to step back, reflect on what you want for your work and your life, and explore concrete ways to create forward action after the event. By participating in this experience, you'll leave with increased clarity on what you most desire for your career and your life. You'll learn personal leadership tools and influencing techniques, and ways to apply them following the event. You'll have a chance to move your body and clear your mind. You'll spend the morning in the company of other inspiring women, co-creating connection and community. You'll leave with a set of concrete tools and a personalized action plan to apply what you've uncovered following the event.
outcomes for your organization
Can you imagine a world where talented women are just as likely as talented men to receive the first critical promotion to manager, be hired into senior leadership positions, and become CEOs? A world where the term "glass ceiling' is a thing of the past, and a world where the first questions we ask female political leaders are about their vision and plans for the future of the country, instead of their plans to have children?
While we have made great strides as a country and a world in the areas of women's rights and female leadership, we still have some work to do.
Women are underrepresented in every level of our organizations. And as we move upward, the disparity increases. Women are 44% of the overall S&P labor force, yet only 25% of executive and senior-level officers and managers, and 6% of CEOs. We see women's leadership gaps across a number of industries, despite findings that women demonstrate equivalent leadership, skills, and capability to men.
Investing in high-performing female leaders is good for business, good for women, and good for our world. We welcome both individual contributors and teams to this event, and are happy to offer discounted pricing to teams of 3 or more who attend together.
