Join us Wednesday, March 29th for our first leadership study of the year!

 

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we will be focusing on Women in History. Participants are asked to research an influential woman in history and how she relates to her own leadership abilities; consider her leadership style, the obstacles she faced, and how she overcame them. What is it about this woman that drew you to learn more about her? How can her experiences influence your own leadership growth and development?

 

During this study, women will be asked to share in small groups what they learned and discuss the success (and learning opportunities) that each of these women in history have to offer us. Towards the end of the session, we will gather together as a large group to share our small group discussion and takeaways.

 

Some suggested resources:

http://www.womenon20s.org/candidates  This site provides a list of women who were under consideration for replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Each woman has her own story, and perseverance in the face of adversity is a key theme for many of these women. 

 https://www.bustle.com/p/9-books-about-badass-women-you-didnt-learn-about-in-history-class-38764  Each of these books offer a compilation of different women's bios and how they influenced some aspect of history, science, or culture. 

 Lunch will be provided. This is a members only event and space is limited, so register early!
