Speaking & Events

My speaking, workshop facilitation, retreats, and University-of Wisconsin of Madison Continuing Studies courses focus on empowering women of diverse backgrounds and identities, and their allies. 

Speaker and Workshop Facilitator

I facilitate workshops and classes for leaders and organizational affinity groups on topics such as:  

  • Understanding gender and other systems in the workplace

  • Identifying skills and strengths

  • Demystifying leadership

  • Leading from authentic values

  • Career planning

  • Understanding emotional labor in the workplace

  • Mentorship and sponsorship

  • Boundaries and balance

  • Negotiation, self-advocacy, and confidence


Keynote Speaking, Workshop Facilitation, and Professional Development Classes

  • Do you need a spark for your organization’s conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusion, especially at the leadership level? 

  • Are you a woman professional with career aspirations that could be nurtured through a targeted workshop, class, or retreat? 

  • Are you an organization with a women’s affinity group in need of a short-term facilitator to focus conversations and inspire action?
