The Women’s Affinity Leader Group at Jones Day hosted a session focused on Communicating Effectively for all employees. The session had a great mix of participants from new law-school grads to partners in the organization—both female and male—all together for an interactive session to develop communication tools.
Our January workshop with Kao NOW, the women’s initiative at Kao, was a long-time coming as we had been planning with the initiative’s leaders for over a year to make the event a success. The topic selected by the group was Communicating Confidence for Achievement, which was paired with the creation of vision boards to kick off the new year.
Having women in leadership actually encourages other women to speak up and bring their ideas forward. So speak up and encourage your fellow female leaders to do so. Speak with passion and authority and please don’t apologize.
The Communicating Effectively workshop we developed in conjunction with the General Cable team invited both male and female employees to attend and discuss the differences in perceived vs. actual gender-based communication styles.
We presented to students, alumni, and community members in Hoboken, NJ (check out the great views!) on the topic of Communicating Effectively.
