Gild on campus
When you create together, you grow together.
And in the process, sisterhood takes on new, nuanced meaning. As a departure from (and complement to) your traditional events, Gild Workshops can help you foster stronger relationships between members, and tighten the ties that bind you all.
In our experience, it helps to bring the outside in. When new faces greet your chapter and facilitate a guided experience, new conversations follow suit. In addition to a memento made by hand, your members will come away with clarity and confidence.
Our curriculums address the issues young women face on campus and in the initial steps of their career development, based in three keys areas:
- BUILDING CONFIDENCE: We underscore the difference between speaking up and being outspoken, and examine what “I’m sorry” really means in the classroom or office. Our participants reflect on their accomplishments, explore the notion of personal pride, and seize the space they deserve to take up in the room.
- FOSTERING MENTORSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS: No matter what they say, there’s enough room for everyone at the table. We unpack the struggles of navigating a competitive landscape, lay emphasis on building positive relationships, and explore what it means to pay it forward.
- OVERCOMING UNJUST MOMENTS: Even tougher than asking the question—“is it because I’m a woman?”—is learning the real answer. We dissect issues of discrimination as a group, drill to the root causes, and most importantly, provide concrete tools to address them and drive women’s equality forward.
