More attention is being given to women in leadership roles in the corporate, nonprofit, and political spheres, though the work toward building greater equity is far from over.

While research has repeatedly shown that women leaders are good for business, many questions remained unanswered: How can we better recognize women as leaders in an authentic way and how do we better lift up women leaders in the nonprofit sector?

This workshop explores the barriers that inhibit women from fully participating in leadership roles using an intersectional lens – a frame of reference that takes into account factors like race, sexual orientation, national origin, socio-economic status, etc. Connect with fellow attendees to identify ways we can break down barriers using examples from hiring and promoting women to challenging unconscious gender stereotypes. Then, we’ll discuss both personal strategies and practical ways to minimize these institutional barriers.

This workshop is designed for nonprofit staff of all genders who are interested in increasing the effectiveness of their mission by improving gender parity in leadership. The course material explores concrete ways to implement human-centered leadership practices, actionable ways to improve racial and gender diversity in the sector, and how women can learn to self-promote.

Our day together will be full of experiential activities, group discussions, and the opportunity to hear from a panel of local leaders. Everybody who is committed to learning research-based solutions to gender equity are invited to talk, listen, and contemplate this vital topic that we’re just getting started to speak out about.

This is for women who want to progress in their leadership and leaders who want to support women in leadership.

 

Workshop Objectives
