CONFERENCE BREAKOUT SESSIONS
Be the Change Panel Discussion
We all have the power to change things within and outside our organizations. Learn how three strong women made an impactful and sustained positive change. On our panel: Amy Hurd from US Bank, who led their grass-roots efforts helping women reach their full potential called The Thrive Initiative; Corenza Townsend from Norton Healthcare, who launched Unity Jam for social change; and Peg O'Neil from UPS, a champion of UPS mentorship programs and sponsor for ERGs.
The Joy of Missing Out (JOMO) - How to Re-Prioritize What's Important
Do you feel like you’re on a hamster wheel? That there isn’t enough time in the day? That you’re always letting someone down? That if you could just get through the next two weeks things would slow down? This session covers how we got “so busy” and focuses on tactics to help us get to a better place. A place of less hustle and more intention. LaCinda shared some helpful resources and most importantly, some easy-to-implement strategies to help you gain clarity on your priorities and make time for what you love.
Mindful Leadership in the Modern World
As the world around us grows more complex every day, it’s increasingly difficult to pay attention to what truly matters – at work and in our personal lives. If you aspire to be a transformative, empathetic leader without sacrificing well-being, cultivating mindfulness is an important step on that journey. In addition to helping better navigate complex situations, mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress, improve focus and performance, increase collaboration, as well as self-awareness and compassion.
Stories of Hope and Resilience Panel Discussion
As working women, we all have challenges that seem insurmountable at times. It's inspiring to hear the stories of other professional women who have overcome big challenges. Join us as two amazing women share their courageous stories of overcoming huge personal obstacles and continued to excel. Moderated by Terrian Barnes, our panel includes Clare Grant, who has been through two challenging adoptions, and Kristi Saathoff, a two-time breast cancer survivor. In this session you’ll learn strategies for resilience and keeping a positive attitude.
Teams That Work: Leading Remote Teams
This session discussed leading remote teams with a focus on challenges and barriers, team development, and engagement to ensure remote teams work. Learn how to maintain productivity, engagement, and accountability while working remotely and considering multiple perspectives to create a cohesive and productive environment for all your colleagues.
