Growing your leadership skills to gain results in your union, workplace, and beyond.
During this one-day workshop, participants will review and analyze some of the latest data regarding women and leadership in the workplace, work through a leadership self-assessment tool, and discuss what women can do to lead in their workplaces and unions both formally and informally in order to create unions and workplaces which better support equity. Participants will have opportunity to network, sharing tactics and ideas with one another, and enhance their leadership skills. Attendees will leave with practical plans for: 1.) how to be more strategic, results-oriented leaders and, 2.) how to build connections and coalitions to further support other women in the workforce.
While the workshop will be held in Madison, it is intended for participants throughout Wisconsin and neighboring states. A block of rooms has been reserved for those who wish to travel the night before. An informal dinner will be organized for those interested in getting together the Friday evening prior to the workshop. Members of the LGBTQ community as well as all women are encouraged to attend.
