EMPOWER: Building Capabilities, Curiosity, & Careers

Female Enrichment Program

April 12, April 19, May 3, May 10 (4 Sessions)

Empower is a program designed for women in the workplace. It consists of 4 modules over a period of 2 months. The targeted audience is mid- to senior career women interested in being part of a cohort that will stay together for the entire program.

Each module will be an interactive onsite 3-hour session and will include an external speaker.

By bringing women together in a cohort, they can learn about themselves and craft their paths based on their renewed confidence and abilities, while sharing these learnings with each other.

In addition to the monthly program, the opportunity for peer mentoring, coaching, and networking will be available.

Module 1: Yourself

This session is designed to help you understand where you came from and recognize all the significant moments that made you who you are. It will help you identify why it’s important to embrace the successes and failures in order to move to a higher level of confidence and capability. This module will also look at your negative thoughts and beliefs (biases) that you hold about yourself and others and enable you to move past those ideologies so you can lead with a genuine and open mind and heart.

Module 2: Your Brand

What you say about yourself directly impacts what others say about you. This module will help you present yourself, whether in face to face communications or social media. It will look at different facets of your networking and provide creative solutions for you to show and be your best self.

Module 3: Your Tribe

This session will focus on the individuals around you that can help you propel your career. Whether through allyship or sponsorship, we will look at ways to increase your visibility through these partnerships and connections, and the opportunities they can afford.

Module 4: Your Focus

Module 4 will focus on your personal and professional development. By reviewing your career and personal goals, and identifying a development plan, it will put you on a path of growth and continued confidence. By identifying your passion, you will walk away with a renewed vision and understanding of your purpose and how you can incorporate everything you do into that vision for your future.
