Redefining Power For Women of Color At Work

Redefining Power For Women of Color At Work

Part of our Corporate Circles: Inclusive Conversation Series

As we cautiously begin to ease out of the pandemic, now is the perfect time to address the kind of inequities that many of our teams face every day.

To kick off our Corporate Circles: Inclusive Conversation series of interactive virtual roundtables, I'm thrilled to welcome authors and nFormation founders Rha Goddess and Deepa Purushothaman to lead us through a conversation on how we can redefine power for women of color at work.

Want to add your voice to the conversation? You can RSVP here for free.

This session provides a safe space to engage in these difficult but meaningful questions and conversations around such topics as:

  • Exploring the idea of power and what it means for WOC in this moment.
  • Analyzing the indoctrination that exists in the structures around us, the messages we receive as WOC and discover how we give ourselves permission to rewrite these narratives
  • Identifying how we can create more power in our roles, especially at work

Can't join us live on September 14th? Don't worry, if you RSVP for the event, we'll send you a recording the next day.
