Event Details

Communicate. Be Empowered. Make a Difference.

Women often are told (or feel) that they are too direct, aggressive, passive, lack confidence and need to speak up more in meetings. How do we avoid these labels and stereotypes in order to feel empowered, confident and be considered equal leaders in our organizations? Communication is key! The Women Empowerment Series will make you aware of your linguistic and communication styles and explore components to build confidence to empower you to make a difference within your organization.

In a series of three, 75-minute workshops (Dec. 3, 10 & 17) with plenty of time for great discussions and break-outs, women will explore their individual communication style and build an understanding of gender stereotypes and how these negatively impact workplace relationships. Non-verbal communication, body language and managing emotion will be discussed to propel our conversations forward and participants will delve into conversation rituals; a re-occurring pattern of conversation and behavior whose meaning, or function is not what it appears to be. By adapting linguistic styles to certain situations, understanding queen bee and imposter syndrome and being more aware of behavior that exists through rituals, women will be prepared to reclaim power, confidence and control in conversations and demonstrate their competence and credibility.

Women communicate a certain way, whether through learned behavior at a young age or through societal influences. Being aware of hidden nuances in conversations and learning to understand and adapt to different communication styles will empower women with communication tools that help them navigate and succeed in the workplace.
