Find Your Own Strength

Elizabeth Lesser in Conversation with Brené Brown and Joan Halifax Roshi

Elizabeth Lesser, Brené Brown, Joan Halifax Roshi

Enrich your journey to find your own unique strength and join us for a free live stream of the opening evening of this year's Women & Power Retreat.

Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega and the Omega Women's Leadership Center, will open the evening with a short talk about the importance of having a soft front and strong back in life. She will then lead a conversation with Brené Brown, author and research professor, and Joan Halifax Roshi, author and abbot of the Upaya Zen Center and you're invited to listen in.

Together, these leaders discuss the strength, vulnerability, and authenticity at the heart of women's leadership today and explore whether there is a uniquely female kind of strength, how vulnerability can make us stronger, and how we can courageously walk our talk.
