8 Big Bold Moves

(2-hour or Half Day Workshop; Ideal for Women’s Networks/
ERG/Affinity Groups)
This is a workshop to help participants learn how to create change across an organization and a playbook for leaders and individuals who want to transform their companies to be equitable, inclusive and innovative.

Inspiring Upstand(HER)s

This workshop is centered around the concept that being an upstander is about both sanding up to the perpetrator AND standing with the victim. While teaching girls how to be an upstander includes strategies for intervening against misbehaviors, it also necessitates the development of empathy skills and emotional intelligence. Our approach to Upstand(HER) behavior aims to first help girls recognize when someone is hurt by acknowledging the situation to the victim (I see you), demonstrating empath (I get you), and using emotional intelligence to support (I feel you) and then learning to proactively speak up and out (I’ve got you!).

This talk is geared towards both younger audiences (middle school, high school and college aged women) AND those who work directly with girls and young women as teachers, counselors, mentors and managers.

The program is based on the global research findings of Why Millennials Matter and includes case studies of organizations representing all three sectors: social, private and public.
