Join LMHQ + Civic Hall’s Civic Women for an unconference event about innovations in women’s advocacy and female empowerment. This participant-driven, loosely structured event will emphasize the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants.
We’ll break out of our comfort zones to develop actionable takeaways to change the future of women. What does this mean exactly? Now more than ever, we must examine the conversation around women’s advocacy and empowerment as tied inextricably to power structures around gender, race, class, ability, and sexuality. Participants are asked to push themselves and challenge underlying assumptions and subconscious bias, paying special mind to intersectionality.
Topics will include closing the wage gap, girls’ education, leadership, political protest, racial justice, gender, workplace policies, entrepreneurship, and more. Formats can range from a facilitated dialogue, to a lecture, to a workshop. Like a typical un-conference, attendees may float in and out of sessions, to gain as much from the event as they like.
