    Event Description:
    Celebrate Women’s History Month, by attending this month's Women in Business Group. This group is founded on the belief that we are better together than alone.

    The Women is Business group uses the LEAN IN model to frame our conversation around leadership and overall empowerment. This session will focus on how to harness the power of framing to turn a challenging situation into a learning opportunity. The takeaways from this session will be the following:
    • Practice self awareness
    • Learn to pause in difficult moments
    • Adapt to make the most of every situation
    In preparation for the meeting consider the following:
    1. Pick up a copy of Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead. For those with more limited time, invest 15 minutes to watch Sandberg's landmark TED Talk that sparked the Lean In movement (watch here).
    2. Check out the 7-min "Framing" video (watch here).
    If you cannot get through any of these items, don't fret! There is still plenty to be gained in these meetings for new faces to the most prepared participants. It's wonderfully organic!

    The Women in Business Group is Berwyn’s first and only forum for women in all levels of business. Expect lively discussion on issues that are important to your growth. Connect with other local professionals on a deeper level, learn new best practices and build comradery with other women conquering the same challenges you face in your business and career.

    Please invite colleagues to this engaging gathering. As an added bonus,

    Chick-fil-A will be providing lunch for the group!
