The Women Executives Forum explores the challenges and opportunities facing women executives in the C-suite. As one of the 41 Drivers of Change in ForesightWorks, “Empowered Women” is a significant area of development and programmatic priority for ASAE. Through the Women Executives Forum, ASAE explores and acts on our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion in general, and the achievement of gender parity in association leadership specifically.
Women Executives Forum workshops throughout 2021 will feature notable speakers from the association, nonprofit, and public sectors. Following each thought-provoking presentation, participants will join facilitated small group discussions to explore topics in depth with their peers.
Supporting other women in their leadership journeys has been identified as a top priority by C-Suite leaders. To that end, the 2021 Women Executives Forum has been designed to facilitate this important process. C-Suite participants are encouraged to invite one “mentee” to join the program. Upon registration, they will be provided with a discounted registration code for their “plus one”. Mentees will participate in parallel cohort discussions following each session, providing for unique perspectives to bring back and explore with their mentor.
Please join us for session four, Women and Executive Presence.
Executive Presence is viewed as that intangible sense that leaders project an air of being in charge, without ever stating it outright. It could be the cadence with which they speak, the way they physically carry themselves, or the way they work under pressure. It’s more than just being good at their job, it’s the confidence and respect that they inspire in others.
These intangibles are inherently impacted by factors such as voice, dress, composure and communication. And, while all executives are measured on these criteria, women continue to feel more pressure to find just the right balance between trying to fit a certain mold and staying authentic and comfortable in their leadership style.
This session will explore unique challenges women feel when leading others from a position of authority.
Registration for this workshop will close Wednesday, May 12th at 12:00 p.m. ET.
Participants will have access to recorded sessions, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.
