Sessions will take place at WHRL’s Office, 87 Main Street, Milbridge
Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their careers. Working women today are better educated and more well-qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world.
In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence. Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to “lean in.” Instead, they offer women the inspiration and practical advice to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.
All participants will be notified of pick-up availability at Women for Healthy Rural Living’s office for books to borrow for the event and welcome packets sometime in November.
About the Women’s Business Center and the discussion format:
CEI Women’s Business Center (WBC) supports women and those who identify as women, from developing their business idea to design and start-up through growth and sustainability. We do that through workshops, peer learning cohorts, and events all geared towards supporting women in their entrepreneurship journey. An important component for business (and life) success is confidence. Often, WBC clients are able and knowledgeable but need to strengthen their confidence level as they forge ahead. Whether you are in business or not, how many times have you wished that you were sure of yourself, stronger, and able to find your voice?
We will use the Confidence Code book as the basis for our learning together and some interactive and reflection questions between conversations. Together we’ll explore our confidence level and learn how to be a bit braver than we ever thought.
This is for any woman who wants to build their confidence quotient (whether in business yet or not).
