This workshop has been cancelled.

Today’s culture sends young women conflicting messages about power: be strong, but don’t make waves; be successful, but don’t brag; be ambitious, but give to others before yourself. The pressure to be nice, please others, or achieve perfection can stifle your confidence to speak up in a class or meeting, pursue a new opportunity, or disagree with a peer or authority.

This workshop encourages healthy risk-taking and freedom from the fear of failure at a time when young women are confronted with pivotal choices and new experiences. In a fun, supportive, and hands-on way, you engage in activities ranging from journaling and meditation, to creative games, role-play, goal setting, and discussions.

You develop a set of skills to lead, listen deeply to yourself and others, and fully communicate your needs, thoughts, and feelings in your most important relationships.

Open to young women ages 18–29.
