Every woman is different in how they experience the world. For women in different racial and ethnic groups, factors like cultural expectations, life experiences, and a complex combination of different forms of discrimination, including racism and sexism, overlap in ways that profoundly affect their ability to professionally advance. During this panel, which will be moderated by Bev Wright, three Black women will share their experiences in corporate America and outline how leaders can model better allyship in the workplace.

  • Included in both the On-Demand Keynotes and On-Demand Keynotes PLUS passes.

Linkage’s 2020 Executive Impact Award recognizes four visionaries who are committed to the advancement of women leaders. They are highlighted at this year’s Institute.

MASTER CLASSES

Available through the On-Demand Keynotes PLUS pass. Take a deep dive into the topics covered by our keynote speakers during in-depth, hands-on sessions. Master Classes empower women with the competencies and applied experiences they need to scale the hurdles faced by women in the workplace.

Master Class: Mastering Your Inner Critic

Our Inner Critic is that voice inside our head that is critical of ourselves and others. We need to understand why intrinsic worthiness is essential to overcoming the Inner Critic, and furthermore, that confidence and worthiness are not the same thing. In this session, experience exercises designed to help you to identify your Inner Critic in action and learn how to coach your Inner Critic by unpacking best practices to return to your compassionate center. This Master Class aligns with the foundational Hurdle, the Inner Critic, which will be introduced in our opening Keynote.

Master Class: Game Changer | Getting What You Want Through Negotiating

Negotiation is a critical leadership skill. A good negotiator, just like a good leader, builds relationships, generates consensus, navigates tough conversations, and achieves goals. During this hands-on session, you will explore the best practices that skilled negotiators use to close the deal and build long-term, meaningful relationships. This Master Class aligns with the Influential Competency, associated with the Making the Ask Hurdle.

Master Class: Building Personal Brand & Presence

Women leaders need to manage themselves consistently, develop organizational savvy, build brand and present a respected public presence, and inspire confidence in others regarding their ability as a leader. Master Class leaders will help you expand your comfort zone of communication, including voice, body language, and message. You will practice the behavioral signals of Leadership Presence and learn how to paint a memorable picture for audiences through communication and gravitas. This Master Class aligns with the Bold Competency, associated with the Branding & Presence Hurdle.

Master Class: Unlocking Mind-Body Connection

When it comes to mastering the seven hurdles to advancement, we must start with our own well-being. During this session, we will unlock the power of aligning the mind and the body to expand our capacity for presence, centering, and self-awareness as a leader. Experience a guided meditation experience designed to allow you to become in-tune with your body and mind, and unlock mindfulness best practices that you can begin to apply in your daily life to help you ascend to new levels through clarity of your purpose. This Master Class aligns with the Clear Competency, associated with the Clarity Hurdle.

  • Overview and Timing
    • Linkage’s Women in Leadership 2020 Institute (“the Institute”) is a four-day immersive, virtual learning experience guided by the results of your Advancing Women Leaders 360° Assessment.

    • The Institute’s assessment solution includes standard electronic reports. The assessment results produced as a result thereof are not designed to serve as the sole basis for any employment decision (promotion, termination, etc.) on the part of Client with respect to any of the individuals assessed.  Prior to launch, participants can be changed with written notice at least 7 days before the launch date. Assessments must be completed by participants within the launch window. Assessments will not be relaunched to participants who failed to complete their assessment during the agreed upon time frame. Once launched, an Assessment may not be transferred to another individual. Linkage will not regenerate reports that have already been distributed.

What our attendees are saying

On-Demand access is an incredible feature, and it reduces the stress of missing anything.

This is the best practice for virtual conferences!

The keynote speakers were top notch – great presenters with a solid/clear message and with helpful information in each – plus, all were powerful women!

What an amazing array of talented and inspirational leaders. The diversity of thought and presentation was perfect! I learned something from them all.

This experience has been life-changing for me and could not have come at a better time.

I have attended many summits in the past but I must say that this one truly resonated with me.
