Description of initiativeDescription of initiative
In replacement of this year's Women & Leadership Symposium, we offered 31 days of Women & Leadership Learning for the month of August. Each day of August featured one learning opportunity from a woman leader. Some sessions were live, while other sessions had been pre-recorded. All live sessions were also recorded for later viewing. Learning focused on three themes: • Finding Your Voice: Sessions focused internally on self-reflection and personal development. • Building Your Voice: Sessions focused on leadership tactics, community building, and having bold conversations. • Putting Your Voice into Action: Sessions focused externally on career development, community action, and building inclusion.
