This week was the announcement of the DC National Association of Women Business Owner’s Woman of Distinction. While speaking there, I covered “hot topics” from the Hot Mommas Project and the Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership course at the George Washington University. These included:Negotiation, Mentoring, The Confidence Equation, Frenemies, and more.
Research shows that around age 11, girls can begin to experience deficits in what is called “self-efficacy.” In layperson’s terms, this is the feeling of “I can do that.” It doesn’t stop there. As the instructor of a nationally award winning women’s leadership course, I’m called into corporations where I hear about…well…grown up versions of “Mean Girls.” Is there a connection to that 11 year-old?
We’re giving five scholarship tickets to our March 10 Guerrilla Mentoring event. These are coveted spots my pretties, as our last event was packed standing-room-only.
