The Mindfulness Advantage in Women’s Leadership

Empowering women today to lead our organizations into the future.

As a community of women we will explore cultural myths and biases about females in the workplace. Together we will create a new vision of possibility & strength with the resources needed to actualize this vision. We are stronger together.

Our focus is an internal (r)evolution. We participate in the evolution of possibility by building the internal scaffolding of leadership potential through self-awareness and inner wisdom. This isn’t about gender prioritizing, but a movement toward inclusive leadership that makes room for courage alongside compassion, competence alongside cooperation, and confidence alongside connection.

Through mindfulness practices, group exercises, somatic exploration, and writing exercises, each attendee will leave feeling more connected to themselves and the commitment needed to actualize a new paradigm of women’s leadership.

Practical tools will be woven throughout our time together that can be used immediately in the workplace and beyond.
