    Never Mind the Lipsticks: How the '70s Changed Beauty

    A glance back at a decade when lipstick served as both a witness and a catalyst to history Join freelance writer and consulting copywriter to the beauty industry Ilise S. Carter for a glance back at a decade when lipstick served as both a witness and a catalyst to history. The 70s have long been thought of as a low point in American culture and style. However, for the beauty industry, the era of disco and Watergate marks a tremendous shift in the who, how, and why of lipstick wearing. Drawing from her book, The Red Menace: How Lipstick Changed the Face of American History, Carter weaves together how the shades on everyone from Marsha P. Johnson to Dolly Parton made a lasting impression on the course of our politics and pop culture. Host:  The mission of The National Arts Club is to stimulate, foster and promote public interest in the arts and educate the American people in the fine arts.

    Know Your Worth: Understand Your True Professional Value

    As Van Gogh once said, "If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." Everyone grapples with self-doubt once in a while but when it’s left unchecked, the fear that fuels your doubt can drive you to be over-cautious and derail you from what you set out to accomplish. On the other hand, a positive perception of your self-worth can greatly improve your quality of life and help you advance on your career path. However the journey of realizing your true professional value does not just stop at understanding your self-worth. You need to take this one step further by conveying this value to your boss, colleagues or recruiters so you get what you deserve and nothing less. To know your worth and deal with self-doubt in a constructive manner, join us as our speaker shares how to measure your value in a professional setting, build confidence, and convey your true value to important stakeholders in your career journey. About the Instructor Joanna McCatty Founder and Head Global Career Coach, Protoscience Hi, my name is Joanna but you can call me Jo.I began my career as a scientist in R&D and worked in the chemicals sector here in Australia until I chose to do what many of us Aussies do and go travelling. When I got to London after visiting quite a few destinations along the way, I embarked on joining a pharmaceutical firm. But my career journey took a detour when a different proposition was offered into the domain of recruitment through them. I decided. Every decision we make is a choice. And so, my recruitment career journey began. After working in agency, exec search, in-house and RPO, I decided that assisting people with their career was really what I enjoyed within this sphere. This is how Protoscience was born. After attending a self development seminar in 2018, thanks to Success Resources, I took the brave step. Then more officially in 2020, whilst still working in TA, I kick started my global coaching practice. This brings me to today. I help people at a stage where they want to move up in their career and they need a strategy and career road map to get there. I empower people with the right tools to make that happen.

We’re pleased to present you two days of immersive conversation through themed panels, sessions, fireside chats, and open discussion spaces, all exploring more deeply how new technologies can help us create a safer, healthier, and greener world. These conversations feature Venture For ClimateTech's impressive cohort of founders as well as a range of experts across mobility, sustainability, energy, water, and more, including an appearance from special guest speakers Brad Feld and Dave Jilk! All events on September 15th and 16th are open to the public. For ClimateTech is also planning special events for investors in partnership with Carta, Visible Hands and others as part of the summit. To attend these exclusive sessions for investors, request an invitation here. See events below. Implicit Bias Workshop and Discussion When: August 30th, 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET (10:00 - 11:00 AM MT, 9:00 - 10:00 AM PT) Description: As climate investment increases and the VC funding gap for founders from underrepresented backgrounds, we know that a barrier remains to getting the best solutions that can solve the climate crisis to market due to bias. Uncovering implicit bias and understanding the role investors must play to address their own is crucial as this industry expands and we all aim to protect people and the planet. Join SecondMuse and Visible Hands for a workshop and discussion aimed at generating empathy and understanding for diverse founders' experiences and tactical ways to be part of the solution. A Deep Dive Into Climate Investment Trends and Technologies When: September 8th, 12:30 - 2:30 PM ET (10:30 - 12:30 PM MT, 9:30 - 11:30 AM PT) Description: Firms have already closed more climate funds in 2021 than in the previous five years combined, according to Pitchbook. Additionally, there has been a 3,750% increase in total venture funding in the climate tech space at $16.1 billion since 2013. What does this mean for the future of climate investment and how can current and future investors better understand the opportunities and challenges in the space? Join Carta, Terra.do and For ClimateTech for a discussion with leading investors exploring the climate solutions, science, and trends that will define investing in climate for years to come. Since Venture For ClimateTech - the venture studio and accelerator hybrid - launched late last year we have brought together hundreds of innovators, leaders, and industry experts committed to supporting early-stage climate innovation. Additionally, our founders were selected from more than 600 teams spanning over 64 countries. Over the past few months, we have seen them successfully expand their ideas, teams, and vision.

    Power Hour With Candice Jones: How To Prioritize Self-Care As An Entrepreneur

    Being an entrepreneur comes with a different set of challenges. Relying on yourself to make it happen is the ultimate challenge. While many achieve access, they tend to forget to take care of themselves along the journey. On September 14th, Candice will join the women of the Her Agenda INSIDER community, to discuss how to prioritize self-care as an entrepreneur. More About  Candice Jones Candice Jones, entrepreneur and content creator, has garnered attention with her expertise in all pillars of self: self-love, self-care and self-confidence. Throughout her adolescent years, her parents instilled in her the importance of hard work and determination. These values led her to attend The University of Central Florida. She graduated with a Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences in hopes of becoming a gynecologist to make her family proud. Solitude and introspection helped her come to the realization that the dreams and values she carried did not align with her life’s purpose. Jones was inspired by this epiphany and began doing the inner workings to build the foundation of her legacy without outside influences. Jones’ resilience and determination helped her redefine her identity. This journey to self- discovery birthed her community-driven lifestyle platform, Everything She Is Co. This digital safe haven she’s created is the manifestation of her overcoming shame, guilt and uncertainty. Jones is now tackling entrepreneurship with the tools she’s providing with her lifestyle brand in hopes to help young women and girls embrace their journey into womanhood. Jones’ transparency inspires young women to unlearn concepts that don’t align with their beliefs, the importance of forgiveness and gratitude to break the barriers that keep them from being their authentic self.

    Women Lead: Leading Mindfully Through Transitions and Uncertainty

    How can leaders best navigate today's challenging circumstances and guide their teams to the "next normal"?

In times like these, mindful leadership matters more than ever. For guidance on becoming a more mindful leader, Forté has invited Lili Powell, an associate professor at University of Virginia's Darden School of Business, to join this live webinar and Q&A.
