12 pm CDT
(10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 1 pm Eastern)
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Women, Language & Power presentation, led by executive and communications coach Susannah Baldwin, Ph.D., explores issues of gender, power, and the extraordinary role language plays in inhibiting or unleashing women’s potential to be effective and powerful in the business world. Susannah will explore the social conditioning that results in women modifying their speaking to always be collaborative, contain their bodies and voices, and put others' needs before their own - minimizing their effectiveness in the workplace. This session focuses on how women can make new language choices that connect them to their power, themselves, and their goals.
