−Using Feminist Leadership to Achieve *Business Results (all-day) @ National Opera CenterOct 15
Wait, what is feminist business?
It’s the merging of feminist values and business results.
Who is this workshop for?
Leaders at any level working in an organization who want new tools for pursuing a specific project through a feminist lens. Leaders at any level in an organization who want to start a new (value-adding) project in a feminist way. Anyone who wants to practice transformational leadership as they face real-world business challenges in their organization.
What problem are is this trying to solve?
Most organizations, while they do valuable work, are not feminist or equitable in their everyday practice. This lack of attention to equity and inclusion hurts those who are discriminated against and left out of the decision-making process. Leaving out values and leaving team members behind also hurts the business itself. This rowkshop is offering new practices for closing the gap between business and values in a way that is co-created with you, since you are the expert in your own organization and role, you know your needs, and you already have great ideas for making your business better.
You bring your own business challenge, managerial skill, and contributor expertise. This workshop will add project development tools, leadership tools, and ideas for executing on your feminist values.
9:00am-12:00pm The Feminist Lean Project Canvas with CV Harquail
The Feminist Lean Project Canvas combines two of the most powerful perspectives in business today: the customer-focused, entrepreneurial iterative, growth-oriented Lean Startup process and the system-changing, inclusive, purpose-driven Feminism. Use the Feminist Lean Project Canvas to reframe a business initiative so that it draws equally on the human capabilities and the organization’s assets. Develop a project idea that you can execute in your role as a manager or individual contributor. With the Feminist Lean Project Canvas, you’ll incorporate your organization’s values and feminist values to craft a project that can deliver real business results.
1:00pm-4:30pm Intro to Take The Lead’s 9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career Created by women’s rights activist Gloria Feldt and adapted for this context by Lex Schroeder, Take The Lead’s Leadership Power Tools are rooted in a sophisticated concept of power. These tools help women leaders navigate the world as is while leading the changes THEY want to see. Build your leadership skills and create a plan of action to deliver on your feminist project you identified in the morning. Shift from the outdated, oppressive “power over” to the positive #PowerTO model and learn immediately actionable leadership tools to make greater impact and advance your career while you’re at it so that all women rise.
$300 for the full day workshop. Discounted “bring an ally” tickets are available for people who bring a friend or colleague. A limited number of reduced price tickets are available for students and individuals needing financial assistance. Please email Lex at email@example.com for more info.
The Take Aways
1) An innovative project management tool for initiating a new project in your organization or transforming an old, broken project into one that expands rather than contracts possibilities
2) Generous ways to create #PowerWITH others to invite support for that new project in your team or organization
3) New leadership tools for advancing courageous new work into your organization, including how to handle controversy, meet chaos with creativity, and deal with competing organizational values
4) Connection with a larger network of feminist business practitioners – people who often need to find each other outside of organizations since equity and justice are not typically a business’s first priority
5) Examples of women-led businesses, organizations, and projects as well as women-led, feminist ideas about business you may not have heard before. Rather than following the convention of leaving women (and women’s ideas) out, we’ll bring them in, on purpose, so that you’ll have these examples to draw upon in your own work

−Intersectionality – Author Talk with Patricia Hill Collins @ Potter House7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The concept of intersectionality has become a hot topic in academic and activist circles alike. But what exactly does it mean, and why has it emerged as such a vital lens through which to explore how social inequalities of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, ability and ethnicity shape one another?
In this new book Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge provide a much-needed introduction to the field of intersectional knowledge and praxis. They analyze the emergence, growth and contours of the concept and show how intersectional frameworks speak to topics as diverse as human rights, neoliberalism, identity politics, immigration, hip hop, global social protest, diversity, digital media, Black feminism in Brazil, violence and World Cup soccer. Accessibly written and drawing on a plethora of lively examples to illustrate its arguments, the book highlights intersectionality’s potential for understanding inequality and bringing about social justice oriented change.
Intersectionality will be an invaluable resource for anyone grappling with the main ideas, debates and new directions in this field.

−TEDWomen 2016: It’s About Time (all-day) @ Yerba Buena Center for the ArtsOct 26 – Oct 28
Join the TEDWomen 2016 conference at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where they’ll explore how time and attention shape our lives. It’s about time…
TEDWomen 2016: It’s About Time.
In planning for TEDWomen 2016, TED asked their community: What matters to you now? And in emails and comments and even drawings from TEDxWomen organizers and their network of longtime attendees, one powerful theme emerged: time.
Time is personal. We all have the same amount of time — 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough. Even with today’s latest inventions, technology, science, we can’t make time or stop time — or can we?
Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. TEDWomen 2016 will explore the conventions and challenges of time.
They will ask the hard questions. Because isn’t it about time:
- To find long-term solutions to climate change, poverty, immigration, violence, race, gender and economic inequities?
- To lead for different outcomes?
- To challenge our “time-saving” technologies?
- To pay full attention and be fully present for ourselves as well as others?
In three days together in San Francisco, you will hear talks that offer up ideas, stories, solutions.
