Enhancing Your Well-Being While Making Your Way In the Workforce

  • Women’s health is unique. Women wear multiple hats throughout the course of a day.  Women who take the initiative to recognize that their well-being should be a priority fare better than those who do not. In this workshop will discuss tools to help women prioritize their personal well-being: the Spirit, Mind, and body.

Latine Leadership, Activism, and Community Building

  • The western ideals of leadership are all around us, but that doesn’t mean it’s everyone’s practice of leadership! Let’s dialogue about how the Latine community has been practicing leadership in our own ways even if we haven’t called it leadership!

Establishing Foundational Values for Successful Leadership

Rooted in spiritual, reflective, and restorative practices, we’ll discuss the foundational values that center and balance a Latina leader’s approach in the diversity, equity, and inclusion space.

Planting Seeds: Facilitating with Vulnerability

  • Great facilitation consists of direct communication, clear directions, and a facilitator's ability to show vulnerability in their approach. As facilitators, we set the tone in any space and hold the space for others, it's a hard balance, but one that is done well when compassion is centered. Come learn some tips on how to do that in your sessions in the future!

Live Authentically Through Your Inner Wisdom

  • This workshop focuses on how you can start to identify how your inner critic (i.e., that Gremlin voice in your head) may hold you back in fulfilling a life goal and dream. Participants will gain more clarity on ways to live a more authentic, connected, and creative way of life. Whether one has moments of self-doubt, a career goal that appears impossible, or may feel burned out and not know where to start, this workshop will help participants get one step closer in going after the life they truly crave.

A Note from Conversations for Empowerment Coordinator, Claire Leffingwell:

We recently wrapped up our first virtual Colloquium—specifically crafted for women in leadership training and development—and wow, how fruitful these conversations were! Through discussing topics such as authenticity and vulnerability, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and identity exploration, we built a strong foundation for important and ongoing dialogue about considerations for women leaders.

As we learned through these conversations, one of the best ways to grow as a leadership trainer is to engage in continual self-reflection and pursue developmental opportunities. Leadership Trainer  focuses exclusively and explicitly on train-the-trainer programming and resources.

Thank you for being part of this incredible experience and check back soon for Winter and Spring 2022!
