New Rules for Women: Revolutionizing the Way Women Work Together

The issue of women working with women is fraught with stereotypes, platitudes and misperceptions that can lead to negative outcomes not only for women but also for their ability to do good work together. Please join us as Dr. Anne Litwin guides us through New Rules for Women, her book detailing important new concepts in understanding the subtle, often invisible, gender dynamics that influence women's workplace relationships. This is a practical presentation or workshop focused on tips, tools and exercises that will give us ways to push back on negative stereotypes as well as reclaim parts of our workplace experience that have been misunderstood and devalued. You (whether a woman or a man), the women you work with, and the women who work for you all stand to benefit from this workshop!


The Imposter Phenomenon

The Imposter Phenomenon (IP) is a term coined by psychologists Pauline R. Clance and Suzanne A. Imes in 1978 to describe an “internal experience of intellectual phoniness in people who believe that they are not intelligent, capable or creative despite evidence of high achievement.” The Imposter Phenomenon is not uncommon, but most people do not talk about these feelings and think they are the only ones having them. In this presentation, we will consider new research on the Imposter Phenomenon and explore strategies for overcoming it. This session will be of interest to anyone who feels they may be experiencing IP, or have a friend, family member, or employees who may be affected by it.


Being an Only

Many senior- and mid-level women find themselves in the position of being an “Only,” defined by researchers as, “women who are often or always the only female in the room at work.” In this session Dr. Anne Litwin will share current research on some challenges women face when they are an “Only,” the impact on health and well-being that can occur from this dynamic and strategies for overcoming these challenges. This session will benefit you if you are an “Only,” or if you are the supervisor, friend or family member of someone who is an “Only” to help you understand more about the person's experience and learn how to support her


Women and Men Working Together

Companies that thrive value the talent that is in their midst. They both attract new talent and keep and groom their current talent as future leaders. Women and men bring different strengths to the workplace, but these differences are not always equitably valued or rewarded. This interactive workshop/presentation raises awareness of these differences and builds skills for cross-gender communication and colleagueship. Our focus is on what leaders can do to create inclusive organizations where both women and men can emerge as the next generation of leaders.
