Nazareth College School of Business and Leadership hosts Women’s Leadership Workshop Series

Published February 08, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted women’s careers disproportionately, as news reports of the she-cession and low workplace participation rates not seen since the '80s remain alarmingly persistent. Nazareth College's new workshop series aims to offer young women professionals the tools to navigate their careers and thrive. 

Presented by Nazareth's School of Business and Leadership, Nazareth’s Women’s Leadership Workshop Series will focus on skills and tools to advance as effective, successful, and fulfilled leaders.

For three Saturday mornings this spring, beginning March 5, the workshops tackle top-of-mind issues like overcoming self-esteem issues to achieve career goals, making meaningful connections and build relationships in your field, and the dynamics of authenticity and cultural norms and values in the context of today's workplace. 

The workshops are March 5, April 2, and April 30, from 9 a.m. - noon in Peckham Hall on Nazareth’s campus (4245 East Avenue, Rochester, N.Y., 14618). Workshops may be taken individually for $150 per workshop or at a discount for $400 total when you register for all three. For employees of nonprofit — 501(c)(3) organizations, enrollment in individual workshops costs $25 each, and the combination of all 3 workshops is $50. Details and registration: go.naz.edu/wlw.

The workshops:

All you | April 2, 2022, 9 a.m. – noon at Nazareth College in Peckham Hall, Room 301. Continental breakfast served at 8:30 a.m.

There's no one else in the world quite like you, so bring it on! Living and working with authenticity can help you be a more effective, compassionate, and fulfilled leader. In this workshop, we'll explore the dynamics of authenticity and cultural norms and values in the context of today's workplace as well as tools for letting the true you shine.

All together | April 30, 2022, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Nazareth College in Peckham Hall, Room 301. Continental breakfast served at 8:30 a.m.; lunch provided at the conclusion of the workshop. 

Making meaningful connections with mentors in your field is the focus of this workshop. Learn how to expand and tap into your network for professional advice, business growth opportunities, and valuable perspectives on the pulse of your industry today. Plus, because initiating a connection with complete strangers can be intimidating even for the extroverts among us, we'll cover practical advice for conversation starters, using LinkedIn effectively, and more. Lunch will be served during this workshop.
