Through The Looking Glass: Strategies and Tools for Women's Leadership

While over 1/2 of professional jobs are held by women, less than 15% hold top office and only 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. At the current rate, it’s estimated that women won’t achieve leadership parity until 2085. And most women still make less than 80% of their male equals.

Join Frances Yllana, Executive Creative Director of Imaginuity in Dallas, co-chair of AIGA's national Design for Democracy initiative, and former president of AIGA DFW as she takes us through her Women Lead workshop where she'll help you build the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to address both implicit and complicit biases to effect individual and collective transformation towards boosting women's leadership where you work. Through empathy-building exercises and career-path-mapping, this workshop will equip both women and men with the tools they need to understand the role gender plays at work and in our daily lives, as well as with the knowledge and skills necessary for commanding the respect and value we deserve while advancing our servant leadership abilities in the process.
