The Future is Female: Women in Leadership


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Greater Burlington Women's Forum presents "The Future is Female: Women in Leadership", co-sponsored by People's United Bank and UVM Continuing Education.

Women follow many different pathways to leadership. Join us to hear our panelists share stories about their journeys, how they have facilitated the development of women's leadership more broadly, and what they've learned along the way.

We look forward to a lively discussion around professional and personal development. This open format panel welcomes conversation and questions such as: What advice would you give now to your younger self? What accomplishments bring you the most pride? What leadership work excites and inspires you? What are some professional resources for elevating women and building confidence in our roles as leaders? What are some of the unique challenges, and what might we all have in common? How can we all work together in promoting women to positions of power and leadership?

Our Panelists:

Ashley Michelle Fowler, Communications and Development Associate, Mercy Connections & Faculty, CCV.

Linda Tarr-Whelan, Visiting Fellow at Champlain College & Author of Women Lead the Way: Your Guide to Stepping Up to Leadership and Changing the World.

Cortney Cahill, Leadership and Organization Development Consultant & Owner of Cahill Collins Consulting Partners.

Carina Driscoll, Co-Founder/Owner Vermont Woodworking School & Co-Founder of the Greater Burlington Women's Forum.

Moderated by: Joanne Jastatt, Executive Leadership Coach, Career Strategist, and Public Speaker.

Soft drinks and snacks will be served. Come listen, learn, share, and network with women in our community. The program will close with time for participants' announcements (job openings, services available, upcoming events...). The space is available from when the program finishes until 8:30pm for connecting with the GBWF community.

Please register to save your seat at the table (no need to print out a ticket, though!).

BY DONATION. For our events to be accessible and affordable for all women, we rely on your contributions! We ask for a $10-$20 sliding scale donation at the door—credit card, cash or check (payable to Greater Burlington Women's Forum).
