She Geeks Out Strength-Based Leadership Workshop Sponsored by Acquia

September 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Please join us at Acquia‘s beautiful offices in downtown Boston for a fun night of learning, networking, eating and drinking. You’ll walk away with more knowledge, new connections, and a full belly. As with all of our events, food and wine will be served!

Please note that this is a women-only event that is welcoming and respectful of trans women.

This workshop will introduce the concept of strength-based leadership and what this looks like in both calm and fiery situations. Through a series of conversations and experiential activities, you’ll break down the walls of separation to inspire more connection and vulnerability in order to deeply explore these topics. Using evidence based techniques and experiential learning practices, you’ll leave with a refreshed perspective and energy to catalyze their impact and promote a culture of support and strength-based leadership.

What people are saying
“This workshop is not something where you’ll walk away with prefab hacks to try and get your organization back in track. Instead, you’ll be given an opportunity to explore your relationship with yourself and with others around you in order to create meaningful dialogues and action items for your team.” -Rhiannon C.

“I’ve always been a fan of Meyer’s Briggs personality test which teaches you that people approach problems in different ways, but when Katie explained that we “see what we know to see and look where we know to look” it made me realize that I have been approaching problems with my own blinders on, and need to shift away from my preconceptions in a group setting”. -Sara K.
