Communication shapes how we experience each other: when we change the way we connect, we change the world. Join us for Power Connection, a dynamic, interactive one-day learning experience that uses the power of improv to help you and a group of colleagues connect and challenge dynamics that undermine women’s power and authority. Reshaping the future for women in STEM depends on our ability to connect with ourselves and our colleagues in new ways. Becoming more effective agents of change will empower you to infuse new energy and genuine human connections into your work, whether as a leader, researcher, teacher, or colleague. The Alda Center Team will guide you through a series of tiered modules designed to navigate challenging power dynamics, engage in difficult conversations, and advocate for yourself and others more effectively. Imagine a professional development experience where you advance your skills in persuasion, negotiation, listening, and presence while connecting with inspiring, like-minded colleagues who want to facilitate change together with you!
By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
• Use a new repertoire of skills to address gender-based communication challenges
• Listen, connect, and adapt in the moment, while maintaining your authority and voice
• Engage in challenging conversations
• Navigate power dynamics
• Promote – and advocate for – yourself and others more effectively
