The Women Executives Forum explores the challenges and opportunities facing women leaders—executives in and aspiring to the C-suite—and how men and women can take action to support gender equality. The series of workshops features notable speakers from the association, nonprofit, and public sectors. Each edition of the Women Executives Forum features a thought-provoking keynote presentation followed by facilitated table discussions.

As Lisa Sun, founder and CEO of the apparel company Gravitas, explains, people can’t be confident until they fully understand what makes them uniquely strong. But how to discover it? Sun explores different confidence personalities and how they connect to each person’s unique skills. Packed with real takeaways for personal and professional advancement, this workshop will have attendees buzzing as they figure out their own confidence language and the gravitas they naturally channel, realize how their confidence language has been helping (and hurting) them, and discover how to ultimately use it to work through challenging situations and make positive situations even better.

This edition of the Women Executives Forum series is co-located with the 2020 Great Ideas Conference. Conference registration is not required.

Through education, collaboration, and networking, the Women Executives Forum provides a framework and tools to support women leaders in the association community, facilitating the leadership pipeline and helping associations transform their organizations and the communities they serve.
