Join faciliators Tanya Taylor Rubinstein and LaDonna Redmond for a transformational pre-conference workshop that will prepare you to share your story and vision with confidence.

This workshop will help you reveal the deep connection between your personal stories and your activism, an essential combination for any compelling presentation in these trying times. You'll learn how to connect the dots from the personal to the collective, resulting in a TED-style talk/monologue that you can use to move hearts and minds to further your mission in the world. Whether you are committed to social justice, deep ecology, creativity and healing, or some other evolutionary wisdom, you will leave the workshop ready to speak eloquently and persuasively about your mission, one-on-one or to a group.

The workshop runs from 9 am- 4 pm Thursday, November 2nd and wraps up from 9-11 am on Friday, November 3rd before the Women's Congress conference begins. On day one you will learn skills of personal storytelling for high emotional impact. as Tanya and LaDonna guide you in identifying and weaving together personal stories that are linked to bigger ideas that inspire positive action. On day two, you will have a chance to present your mini talk to the group, receiving coaching and feedback to help you share your story confidently, in an embodied and authentic way.
