Why this workshop?

“Women have achieved equality in the workplace!”


Women are 52% of the population, yet

  • The gender wage gap for women is the same as it was in 1960 – women still earn 80 cents for every dollar earned by men. 

  • There are only 24 female CEOs of the Fortune 500 companies.

But the times are changing...

  • In 2017, women’s professional and academic achievements hit an all time high:

    • 47% of graduating doctors were women.

    • For the first time ever, women comprised the majority of law students in the United States. 

    • 40% of all executive, management and administrative positions are now held by women. This is an increase from 24% in 1976.

  • In 2018, women made incredible gains in politics. When the new term begins in 2019, women will comprise 23% of Congress.​


who is it for?

Participation is limited to 40 women.  This workshop is designed for professional women looking to embrace their strengths and lead in authentic ways.


Her Wisdom understands the necessity to develop the skill sets that will allow more women to claim their seat at the table.

This four-hour workshop will be facilitated by the Her Wisdom team and will address:


  • Necessity of personal advocacy

  • Fear of public speaking

  • Self-esteem and its impact on message and delivery

  • Daring to try  

  • Moving from the back of the room to the front of the room


"My personal advocacy pitch was a nerve-wracking experience, but in the company of these amazing women, I was able to speak my truth without the fear of criticism. I left with a sense of peace and admiration of the women who attended and facilitated. I also felt stronger as a woman to conquer whatever comes my way!"   -Arlene P.

"The personal advocacy exercise asked us to list our most proud moments and the parts of our life we felt were most accomplished. For myself, these weren’t moments one would associate as rites of passage: graduating college, getting a job, defending a thesis. The most accomplished moments were those that support the purpose I hold in my life. It took plenty of time and tears to pull these moments from memory, and it took even more time and even more tears to stand in front of a room and be my own advocate. Being around women that I trust, respect, and admire made it into the safe space I needed in order to do the work that was to be done." -Anusheh H.
