    Summary

    Please join HERdacity for our webinar series!

    Many times we find ourselves on autopilot mode rolling through life without the energy, joy, and fulfillment that we long to experience. We don't have to settle for status quo though; we are all armed with the power of choice and the ability to change. Join Dena Jansen, Founder and Voice of Dena Speaks, as she covers 5 course corrections where we have the potential to become intentional. These course corrections are human needs we have and actions we could consider that provide real-life opportunities to shift our mindset and put us back in control of our own lives. Any change we decide to make – big or small – can bring more of the freedom, abundance, and connection that are part of thriving, and not just surviving, in our beautiful and perfectly imperfect lives!

    Dena will answer questions such as:

    • What is the difference in thriving and surviving?
    • What are the common roadblocks to thriving in life?
    • What are 5 course corrections to help become more intentional in your goal to thrive?
    • Where and how do I begin striving to thrive?

We’ll talk about preparing to advocate, ways to present a problem and possible solutions, how to “reality check” yourself, and how to address some of the common obstacles you may face. We’ll talk about the differences between informal and systemic advocacy, and how not to reinvent the wheel.

    Summary

    Every woman has a unique voice that is used to express who she is and what she believes, and our homes, workplaces and communities need each and every voice to join in the choir! But sometimes we find that our voice sounds out of tune, off key or even worse, that we’ve lost our voice completely. Dena Jansen welcomes you to join her in a conversation about finding, honing in and using your authentic voice to experience a more genuine connection to yourself and in relationship with others.

    4:30-5PM Arrival and networking

    5:00-5:15 Dena Speaks

    5:15-5:45 Q&A and networking w/ Dena

    5:45-6:00pm Networking

    Key Takeaways & Challenge: 

    • Common Thieves of Our Voice: Lack of Self Awareness (reflection and feedback), Fear, Comparison, Expectations, Shame and Guilt.
    • Voice Lessons Required: You always have a choice to take action and make it a practice to stay aware of when you feel in and out of your voice. Take time for self-reflection and gather feedback to learn and grow. We are humans and our voice will change over time or go astray, but extend grace to yourself and others.
    • Texas Women’s Conference Challenge: Throughout the conference remain mindful and aware of when you and others use their voice. Then express (written or verbal) gratitude for your voice and the choir of other strong willed women using theirs!

    Summary

    Hi HERdacity Community! We'd love for you to join us for another installment in our webinar series. We are going to hear from Kelly Corbet who teaches mindfulness through her company Center|Change in the most diverse settings:  corporate, academic, private, and prison.

    On almost a daily basis, scientific studies confirm the power of mindfulness and meditation to improve brain power, self-confidence, memory, inner-peace, outer performance, and even happiness.  Still, some people feel intimidated:

    • Where do I start?
    • How do I know if I’m doing it right?
    • I don’t have time.
    • I can’t meditate!  My brain won’t turn off!!!

    Kelly’s joy-related mindfulness tips are a FABULOUS way to incorporate mindfulness into your life.  The joy hacks are simple, they take very little time, and the pay-offs are so big, you’ll want to keep practicing even after the holidays!  (Kelly’s students have reported improvements in all sorts of arenas, from weight loss to relationships)

    You will leave feeling empowered and uplifted knowing:

    1. YOU are the president of your happiness
    2. Finding more joy isn’t hard, it’s just differentthan your standard operating procedures!
    3. Mindfully watching your thoughts is key to remembering—or choosing—joy.
    4. You will be shocked that such a small “investment” like meditating a few minutes daily can rock your whole world (your grey matter actually grows!)

    48 hours prior to the webinar HERdacity will send out the Zoom link to access it.

    Kelly received her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and her Master in Public Policy from Harvard University. What she knows from all that excellent education is that the most valuable, life-improving information comes from within.  She believes Love is the most real thing about us, and through her workshops, talks, and books, she hopes to help others remember—and delight in—that!

    Live Speaker Event - Economically Empowered Women: The 5 Essentials

    Date: 01/15/2019

    Time: 9:00am - 11:00am

    Place: Frost Bank, 401 Congress Ave 11th Floor

    Summary

    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.  We will also drink coffee, eat pastries and network so please come join the fun.

     HERdacty’s guest speaker, Laura Pinto, a professional Wealth Advisor, draws on her extensive experience working with women to manage finances, plan their retirement and  build their economic futures.   She will share tips on what you can do right now to better understand your needs, assess decision and protect your financial future.

    Summary

    Hello friends and welcome back to the weekly HERdacity webinar series! We are excited to have Dr. Nahal Delpassand with us this week talking about social media and the epidemic of isolation.

    Do you get irritated when you can't find your phone and you've heard the notification jingle? Do you wake up and immediately reach for your phone? How about those few minutes of free time during the day - do you find yourself compulsively scrolling through your social media news feed? If you're like thousands of other Americans, you probably can't imagine a day without social media. This incredible technology has connected us like never before, yet we rarely stop and think about the impacts it has on our lives and relationships. In this webinar, we will discuss:

    - The growing body of research that highlights this relationship

    - The Impact of the “Like” on the brain and connection to addiction

    - Observations from my own clinical practice

    - Tips and tools for navigating a balance between logging on and logging off

She values helping clients realign with the power of their intrinsic potential.

    Summary

    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:

    1. What are some feminine leadership attributes that can transform the workplace?
    2. What is the difference between motivation and inspiration?
    3. What does “love” really mean?
    4. 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.

    Is your closet helping your career or hurting it?

    Imagine walking into your closet every day and picking out an outfit quickly and easily - not just any outfit, but one that you love, feel comfortable and appropriate in, and expresses the best version of yourself!

    Molly Moran, Creator of The DayReady Wardrobe, will be sharing how she transformed her wardrobe from a closet full of random clothes to a strategically curated wardrobe that works for life’s daily demands.

     

    You will learn:

    • How to see your existing clothes in a new light.
    • How to transform your approach to shopping.
    • How to develop your “try-on checklist.”
    • How to think about the dreaded closet cleanout (To purge? Or not to purge?)

    HERdacity will send out a message with a link to access the webinar 48 hours prior as well as 30 minutes prior. *Check that messages from Eventbrite are not being sent to your spam folder.*

    Molly Moran

    Creator of The DayReady Wardrobe

     

    Having spent over 10 years in the marketing and advertising industry as a creative director and strategist, Molly understands all too well the pressure of “looking the part.”

    Whether flying to multiple cities in one day for back-to-back client meetings, or presenting a strategy to C-level execs followed by a casual brainstorm session with a junior creative team, Molly constantly found herself in a wide variety of fast-paced meetings where the last thing she needed to be thinking about was whether her outfit was comfortable and appropriate.

    She realized she needed a wardrobe that was cohesive, versatile, and expressed the best version of herself no matter the occasion. A tall order indeed, but Molly got to work applying her strategy skills usually reserved for clients to her own wardrobe.

    After spending the past three years developing her wardrobe method, and finding herself in countless conversations with professional women who have gone through similar wardrobe frustrations, she is bringing her solutions to women everywhere.

    As we struggle to keep up in a knowledge economy that never sleeps, we grasp at anything that will help us work faster, push harder, and be more creative. We arm ourselves with life hacks, to-do lists, and an inbox-zero mentality. There’s just one problem: most of these solutions are making things worse. Creativity is not something you can produce on an assembly line and this endless hustle is ruining our mental and physical health, while subtracting from our creative performance. But we can’t seem to stop ourselves. Why do we act against our creative best interests?

    Join HERdacity and NY Times Best-Selling Author and Digital Anthropologist, Rahaf Harfoush as shares her observations on technology, innovation, and the cost of having it all in her new book, Hustle & Float.

    Liza Wilson
    Owner
    ToyBrary

    Liza Wilson has been inextricably linked to education her whole life. She knew from an early age that teaching brought her joy, and after pursuing two master's degrees in education, she spent eight years teaching in both public and private schools (pre-school - middle) and four years supervising and coaching first-year teachers. During her time in private education, Liza was a vital figure in her school's start-up process and management. An important part of education for Liza is quality education materials and she has extensive experience creating and editing activities for French textbooks. These experiences set in Liza the idea for a new kind of business, and she became owner and founder of the ToyBrary Austin. The ToyBrary is a toy-lending library for children ages 6 months to 5 years with play stations and room for birthday parties. With an emphasis on happy kids, less clutter, less waste and happy wallets, Liza has created a community where children and parents are encouraged and supported in their journey to never stop learning.
