"The phrase “glass ceiling” is more than a generation old, but despite identification of the problem, the number of women who lead major organizations in many fields still lags well behind the number of men. In Madison, what can we do to foster a greater number of women leaders?
The Cap Times, working with business incubator 100state, has created an event to examine that question.
City Editor Katie Dean will moderate a discussion panel, whose members are:
• Mary Burke, CEO of Building Brave and former Democratic gubernatorial candidate
• Jan Eddy, BELLE Capital USA and Phenomenelle Angels Fund
• Sabrina “Heymiss Progress” Madison, founder of the Black Women’s Leadership Conference
• Karen Menendez Coller, executive director of Centro Hispano
• Claudia Seidenberg, operations manager at 100state
• Heather Wentler, executive director of the Doyenne Group
The discussion will be followed by brainstorming in breakout sessions to generate actions steps for those who wish to stay.
This Cap Times Talk is free and will start with a meet-and-greet at 6 p.m. The discussion will start at 6:30, and the breakout sessions at 7:30, lasting an hour or so."
"The Advanced Leadership Program strives to identify, cultivate, and support
existing and emerging leaders within the Juneau County area. Sessions focus on
community issues providing participants the opportunity to increase their
awareness of county-wide issues, developing networking and leadership skills
while expanding the participants’ understanding of the diversity of Juneau County.
Classroom settings, as well as field experiences provide a preferred learning
structure and has been the key to the success of the program with over 150
graduated participants. Each graduate will give a brief summary of their ALP
Leadership experience and the impact the program has had on them."
The Black Women’s Leadership Conference is a one day event for women who desire to take part in opportunities for personal and professional growth. Attendees will participate in strategic sessions lead by women who have proven to be leaders in their chosen professions.
You’ll leave the conference feeling supported and motivated to reach your own goals and equipped with the skills to do so! You’ll also have the opportunity to network, shop with vendors, get connected to mentors and resources, and have a professional headshot taken. This conference aims to promote sisterhood while elevating the collective status of Black women.
