As we celebrate the Women’s Suffrage Centennial in 2019 and 2020, it is a great time to look back to what we can learn from the past as we work toward a better future.
April Young Bennett is a motivational speaker who can speak at your event about what modern leaders, activists and change-makers can learn from bold women from history and what she has learned about changing hearts and minds as an advocate for women, children and underserved populations. Themes include:
- Leadership: How do we define our priorities? How do we motivate people?
- Collaboration: How do we build our team? How do we find our niche?
- Diversity: How do we work with people who are different from us? Why do we need to?
- Women’s Empowerment: How do we makes our voices heard? How do we break the glass ceiling?
- Teamwork: How can we support our collaborators? How do we de-escalate conflict?
- Resilience: How do we cope with setbacks?
- Self Care: How do we balance it all?
