Business Agility Institute Presents: Women in Agile
Tuesday March 10th @ 6pm-9pm
$50 per ticket
Join us for another edition of Women in Agile, sponsored by Accenture | SolutionsIQ and hosted by the Business Agility Conference.
Great leaders come in all forms, and gender should not matter when determining if someone has the individual strengths and characteristics to lead employees. But even though men and women are equally qualified, many barriers persist, and women are still underrepresented in top leadership. This is about to change: Feminine traits long considered as drawbacks are the key strengths of 21st century leadership.
But the new leadership approach is about far more than equality and closing the gender gap. It is about creating workplaces that stand for empowering employees and embracing diversity of thought while shaping the next generation of leaders, that can successfully guide people in an age of uncertainty and change. It’s about learning we are not alone but have support on our journey.
Our Women in Agile event is open to all and will have a range of activities through the evening designed to inspire and encourage us all before the main Business Agility conference kicks off.
Our keynote “Dignity Looping – Celebrating and Strengthening Our Voices” will be presented by Marsha Shenk. Marsha Shenk is a pioneer in Business Anthropology. Over four decades with forward-thinking leaders, honing skills to navigate ambiguity and lead change, she has forged models and liberating structures that optimize workplace contribution and commonwealth. Her stories are fun, her questions serious, her solutions immediate.
Marsha is a beloved speaker and teacher, now tendering EcosystemiQ: 6 practices for enjoying a continually-arising world.
After the keynote, participants will be inspired by and learn from three proteges from our Launching New Voices program. LNV was designed to support and mentor new speakers from ideation through delivery. We hope that you will join us to see our newest speakers take the stage.
We look forward to this exciting preconference event and hope you will join us for Women in Agile on March 10, 2020, in partnership with the Business Agility Conference.
