Mapping a Courageous Leadership Journey
Join us on Wednesday, August 12 for a webinar on Mapping A Courageous Leadership Journey, the next presentation in our virtual Executive Level Distance Learning Series.
Impostor syndrome is real. Many successful people feel, or have felt, that terror that someone is going to discover that they’re a fraud. Most of us who experience this phenomenon equate it with the workplace, but it is just as likely to be a factor in realms of life.
This August, the U.S. will celebrate the 100th anniversary of women attaining the right to vote via the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. As we prepare to mark this milestone and honor the courage of those who fought for this achievement, WICT is partnering with She Should Run® to explore women’s roles in decision making, from the grassroots level to the highest echelons of government.
We can’t expect to achieve the best policies when nearly half the population has a limited voice in determining policy. And we won’t reach equal representation in our lifetime unless a pipeline of women begin to see participation in legislation as a possibility within reach.
In this offering, participants will learn strategies to help overcome impostor syndrome and will leave better able to:
- Understand the value of gender parity in leadership for business and politics.
- Recognize social and personal barriers to leadership.
- Advocate for and support gender parity in leadership and political representation.
- Invite and support women to pursue leadership opportunities.
- Determine their individual path to civic engagement.
Find out what role you play in strengthening our democracy and what steps you can take to solve gender inequality.
This webinar is open to all WICT members and will be recorded for later review.
