Economically Empowered Women: The 5 Essentials
Time: 9:00am - 11:00am
Place: Frost Bank, 401 Congress Ave 11th Floor
Are you the captain of your financial future? Or do you find yourself putting off the discussion of financial details because it is too painful or too uncomfortable to face head on. If you’re like many young, middle aged or older women, you put off thinking about your economic empowerment because:
- You’re broke --- You don’t feel you have any money to manage, so why bother?
- You’re waiting --- for the big bonus or ship to come in so you have something to work with.
- It’s not your problem --- someone else in your inner circle makes all those decisions for you so you don’t need to be in the know
- Oh no --- the thought of thinking about your financial status makes you physically ill. Can we talk about something else?
Yet, women end up retiring with 30% less than men do and they live longer!
Let 2019 be the year you get economically empowered. Come join HERdacity as we listen, learn and ask questions about we can be doing differently to be responsible for our financial futures and to feel less stressed about them.

Hi HERdacity community and happy Valentine's Day! Whether or not you chose to celebrate the day, we think love makes the world a stronger and kinder place. Please join us on Thursday, February 14th as we hear from Sarah Elliott with the Ellivate Alliance on how to bolster your leadership skills with a focus on love.
In business, the “L word” (love) is rarely mentioned. When love – compassion, forgiveness, commitment, inclusiveness, understanding – is nonexistent, leadership generally fails. True leadership not only requires love, it is love. Yet amazingly, love is rarely described as a leadership competency. Your future, and your success as a leader, depends on your capacity to authentically model this behavior. Learn to embrace the love for what you do, your passion, and the people and organization you lead and prepare to transform the future!
She will invite us to think about:
- What are some feminine leadership attributes that can transform the workplace?
- What is the difference between motivation and inspiration?
- What does “love” really mean?
- What impact do your beliefs have on not just you, but on those you lead?
48 hours prior to the event, HERdacity will e-mail out a link to access the webinar on Zoom.
Founder, Ellivate Alliance
Co-Founder & Principal, Intend2Lead
Sarah believes in the magic of collaboration. She founded the Ellivate Alliance to connect people, ideas and resources in a way that creates powerful new opportunities to elevate women entrepreneurs. The Ellivate Alliance provides women who are starting a business the inspiration, practical know-how and like-minded community to accelerate their growth during the critical start-up phase. Sarah is also the co-founder of Intend2Lead, a company that coaches CPAs to access the Dimension of Possible through one-to-one coaching, group learning and innovation labs. She was honored as one of the Most Powerful Women in Accounting by CPA Practice Advisor in 2017 and 2018.
