LOCUS presents the “Affirming Authenticity Series” and invites women of diversity for a three-part conversation on identity-driven leadership. Diverse women live and operate in multiple contexts and are challenged to bring all of who we are to each role we play. Identity-driven leadership involves contributing our valuable experience and unique perspectives to our workplaces, communities, and families. Join us for this series of engaging and uplifting conversations!
Affirming Authenticity: Identity-Driven Leadership [at Work]
Thursday, April 24, 2014
5:30pm – 7:30pm
Rondo Community Outreach Library
Has there ever been a time when you’ve felt “different” in your workplace because you did not fit the mold of the dominant culture? Do you ever feel the need to work twice as hard as others to demonstrate that you have the skills and intellect to advance in the workplace? Many women of diversity find that their professional aspirations and environment are in conflict with their personal values and practices.
Join us for a stimulating conversation with Terra Cole, Executive Director of Heritage Park Neighborhood Association, and Sahra Noor, Director of Community Health and Language Services at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview. We will discuss how women of diversity can continue to leverage their unique assets in order to excel in the workplace.
Light refreshments will be provided.
