***READ FIRST: We're starting to mark No Shows and 3 No Shows = removed from group. We've had repeat no shows from a few people, and folks on the waitlist messaging sad there was no space for them to join. This space is made for those who are really looking to connect and be amongst other WOCs, so please make sure you RSVP yes only if you can actually go, or be considerate and update to NO if things change at least 24 hour before the event, so folks who move from the waitlist have time to plan and join. Thanks!***
Open, collaborative, real, effective and fun! I encourage us all to be learners and teachers.
WOCs often struggle with leadership presence or are told more often than other groups that "they're not leadership material." Not having a leadership presence sometimes results in being passed over for promotions, salary increases, special projects or the simple recognition we deserve. How can we grow our leadership presence as WOC? What's in the way? How can we help others?
Good stuff, yeah?!
Let's open up to what challenges we can help with and collectively share our lessons, tips and actions to move forward in all growing our leadership presence from where we're at.
This is intended to be an intimate, fun and effective round table discussion to build connections, sisterhood and take away new perspectives on what it means to be a WoC leader.
6pm - Grab a drink, get settled in our room and get to know each other
6:15pm - Intros
6:30pm - Topic Q's and roundtable discussion
7:30pm - Time for Asks & Offers
7:50pm - cleanup and GTFO, as building closes at 8pm :]
When: Wednesday, July 31, 2019, 6-8pm
Covo co-working space in the STOUT ROOM.
Request for attendees:
Kindly support our patrons by buying a bevvy (wine, beer, tea, coffee, soda, whatever floats your boat!), in exchange for the room they're giving us once a month. They also have snacks and food for purchase.
Why the request?
Covo's badass and has always supported many cultural and inclusive events I've attended. When I contacted them about the group their CEO was so excited to support Women of Color by providing a monthly room for us (so expect to keep coming here!)--their only request was to ask for patronage to their cafe or Tap Lounge upon usage of the space.
