We have found great success through our current curated group offerings (forums) where women (and everyone) are able to connect, develop, and grow. We have also seen women rocking the challenging times and taking the opportunities to connect and make deeper connections.
These groups are designed with an accountability component. In order to grow and make change, your commitment is needed. This is not a pop in as you please program.
Leaders of Change is designed for leaders in organizations who are leading employee/internal resource groups (or HR professionals) to provide them tools, education, and resources that they can take back to their group and organization.
Format: This group gathers monthly over the lunch hour. Every other month we will have an outside speaker present on a topic that is relevant and meets the needs of the group. The months inbetween will be spent with a group member sharing their best practices, challenges, and ideas.
Topic: Courageous Allyship Courageous Allyship, /n/: the act of gathering to explore ways to promote social justice and inclusion in the workplace. The Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce has long created allyships with male leaders in order to help promote the advancement of women in business. We are now pledging to do the same for our colleagues of color. Studies show that diversity training is more successful in a learning cohort that provides individuals from within your organization, but also the ability to learn alongside individuals from other organizations as well.
Join us for this mini workshop presented by S&V Parnters where we will learn from one another how to raise our collective voice as one and ensure diversity is represented in all levels of leadership.
