What does the day cover?

You’ll learn how to use the Design Thinking process to find innovative ways to approach designing your life on purpose. Specifically, you’ll come away with:

  • How to use design thinking to create solutions and not just solve problems
  • Time for self-reflection and action-plan building on enhancing your professional skills
  • Opportunity to form cross-generational / cross industry relationships – at the workshop and potentially long afterward
  • The chance to learn from other women leaders through structured exercises, mastermind sessions, informal conversations and follow up opportunities

 What will we be doing?

You’ll have a chance to connect with other remarkable women leaders in a variety of ways including small group sessions, mastermind time and large group discussions. You’ll be able to refocus and plan your next steps in creating an approach to a leadership challenge you face and you’ll be able to learn more about your leadership and innovation via interactive learning sessions. And we believe that you’ll be inspired – and inspire others by sharing and learning together with other successful women leaders.
