Be A Troublemaker - Stories of Career Boldness
Wins can come in many forms. They can be as big as starting your own business or as small as having your voice heard in a meeting. The common thread? They both come with a tiny act of rebellion; pushing aside conventionally held norms and asserting independent ambition. We've invited a few fellow female "troublemakers" to share their own stories of career boldness with the goal to embolden further generations of women to step out of their comfort zone and pursue a greater ambition. After all, well-behaved women rarely make history, amirite?
We will begin the night with a one of a kind group visualization exercise built to awaken the authentic bold energy within you, developed and led by Jennifer Mergen, Hypnotist and founder of MERGE. The evening will also feature a selection of female-run vendors offering their unique merchandise while you mingle.
6:30-7:00 - Mingle, libations, bites, and shops
7:00-7:15 - Opening exercise with Jennifer Mergen
7:15-8:15 - Panel Discussion, Q&A
8:15-9:00 - More mingling, wine-drinking, browsing, and connecting
