The Power of Being the Only Woman in the Room
The Power to Inspire, Create & Claim Space for EVERYONE
I am often “one of a few” or the “only” woman in a room or a meeting because I work in the world of high school athletics. Once I realized I had a choice to let this intimidate me or use it to my advantage, I recognized there could be power in this situation and I chose the latter. I have experienced my fair share of discrimination, but with time, the more I saw it coming, the better prepared I was to:
I became aware that I needed to use my position as “the only” to benefit other women - those who couldn’t be in the room or at the table
I can provide various services to you, your team, your organization that will create a heightened level of awareness as well as action items to implement to create more space at your table.
Your voice deserves to be heard. I want to hear it. I want the world to hear it! This is your invitation to sit at my table. I want to help you learn ways to sit at more tables!
You Are The Gift!
