The #NotABarbie Career and Empowerment Conference aims to provide guidance and build community among women and trans* professionals who are uninspired by “lean in” thinking. We seek to uplift and validate the characteristics that make women great employees, entrepreneurs, and leaders. 

This day-long conference is hosted by Boston GLOW (www.bostonglow.org) and features over 20 speakers in 3 breakout sessions and 3 keynote speakers.

The event will take place in Wheelock College’s Campus Center Student Residence building.

How to ignore the haters: Finding your authentic speaking voice LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop focuses on helping participants understand the public speaking/presentation style that is most natural and effective for them, and strategies for how to navigate a culture that is hostile to women’s voices. The group will discuss the role cultural traditions and values can play in communication styles, and look critically at the messages that discourage women's voices from public spaces. The workshop uses a combination of small group exercises, discussions, and stories to identify strategies to speak more confidently and resist imposter syndrome.
