Session 1  |  Reclaiming Spaces: The Implications for “Imposter Syndrome”


The spaces we often work in were specifically designed for men who historically did not face the same issues as working women do. One result of this is that women often question their abilities or right to be at the table (often dubbed Imposter Syndrome), but recent work is redirecting those feelings towards the system away from the individual. Hear from several women in leadership positions as to how they have navigated these complex issues.

Break

Session 2  |  Women in Primarily Male Occupied Workspaces


Research suggests that women face unique challenges in the workplace and that women who are one of only a few women in a company or on a team may face unique challenges. Come and hear from a panel of women from diverse industries that have historically been male dominated.

Session 4  |  Reduce Stress and Increase Joy with Emotional Freedom Technique


Women do it all— working, parenting, volunteering, and caring for others. No wonder we’re stressed! Over time, this physical and emotional stress contributes to issues including fatigue, weight gain, anxiety, burnout, and other health concerns. Release stress, rebuild your energy reserves, and rediscover your innate joy through Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Known as “Tapping,” EFT reprograms the body’s response to stress while allowing us to release negative emotions. Join in and feel the amazing difference that EFT produces.
