Affirming Authenticity: Identity-Driven Leadership [for Yourself]

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 [for Yourself]

Rondo Community Outreach Library

—————————————–

Identity-driven leadership can provide women of diversity a strong sense of self and purpose. It is critical to consider how your story has come to be: Have you let others define you and who you are? Or do you maintain the power to determine your identity and to tell your own story? In a world where our identities are comprised of multiple interrelated layers and we often are the sole representatives seen from our communities, how can we overcome pre-conceived notions of us and our experiences?

                              

Join us for a stimulating conversation with Nekima Levy-Pounds from the University of St. Thomas Law School and Rinal Ray from the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. We will discuss how creating and acting from our own sense of core identity can empower us to lead in authentic and sustaining ways to achieve our personal and community goals.

Light refreshments will be provided.
