Above all else, the best part of joining a sorority is being surrounded by women who are both very similar and very different from you. You’ll make friends from different states, majors, and backgrounds and learn to see the beauty in all passions, interests, and personalities.
In July we were invited back to facilitate another great creative session for Gamma Phi Beta Sorority’s REAL Leadership Experience.
When Gild decided to expand their workshops on campus, our goal was to help sororities foster these relationships and tighten the bond between members, all while empowering each individual woman.
We talked with them about confidence: why it matters and how it can impact us, how to communicate it, and how to bring it out in other women.
It was the perfect venue for our Fostering Mentorship & Relationships workshop, focused on building relationships to combat gender bias. The workshop was paired with one of our favorite projects — the double Morse Code Necklace.
In our Developing Female Leaders workshop, we set specific intentions for personal and professional aspirations, which each participant infused into their personalized Vision Board.
The pressures we feel in college and immediately after are exactly why we at Gild are so passionate about working with young women in college. Reaching these women before they enter the workplace and arming them with the tools needed to empower one another in and beyond school is essential to building the next generation of female leaders.
Everyone created a Morse Code Necklace showcasing their most valuable strengths that they can wear to any big interviews, class presentations, or other scary life moments when they need to remember how amazing they are.
