Lead Like a Woman Circle
December 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
You’re invited to join the Lead Like a Woman Circle to explore the many facets of female leadership.
Our ‘lunch and learn’ style Circle meets virtually on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 12 PM.
We’ll delve into what female leadership looks like, hear from women in power about what female leaders need to thrive, and how we can be allies. We will discuss how to lead like a woman, role models to learn from, where to get started, and why female leaders are more important now than ever.
This month, our guest speaker is Lasenta Lewis-Ellis.
Join us to help define what it means to Lead Like a Woman!
