Intrapreneurship: Leveraging Team Creativity for Innovation & Growth

Tuesday July 2 @ Catalyst Ranch 656 W Randolph St #3W, Chicago

The landscape of economic, social and environmental issues in the world calls for new, creative and innovative approaches to business. Markets are shifting as people and technology are driving trends that leave behind the traditional model of profit-maximizing businesses. Creatives now possess an important competitive advantage that they can put to action at their organizations, not only for their own success, but also for profit and social impact.

We can leverage creativity by nurturing entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship, or simply developing our own creative leadership skills to benefit career advancement or bring innovative approaches to our organizations. This event seeks to inspire creative leaders through the success stories of real people and companies that are using creativity as a catalyst for innovation and growth.

Learn about:

  • Multidisciplinary collaboration that leads to innovation
  • The integration by design of sustainability in business
  • Social responsibility beyond checking a corporate box
  • Using culture as differentiation and competitive advantage
  • Adapting new technologies to local realities
  • Creative thinking to build talent, consumer base and new markets

2019 Multicultural Women's National Conference

Tuesday July 9 – Wednesday July 10 @ New York Marriott Marquis, New York, NY

Amazing things are happening for women in leadership, but many organizations are missing the mark on being truly intersectional and inclusive of multicultural women. The misconception that all women have the same workplace experiences, barriers, and career trajectories has trickled down into organizational culture. Now it’s time to push back, and Level Up.

  • Level Up to have honest, trust-building and intersectional conversations
  • Level Up to build confidence and voice that will increase your networks, and get you a sponsor
  • Level Up to effectively engage Senior Leaders to create cultures of inclusion

This 2019 conference is all about exploring next level leadership solutions for all, but with a special emphasis on specific strategies multicultural women need in order to advance. This is an opportunity for women of all backgrounds to come to mutual understanding, and build powerful relationships.

What will YOU need to Level Up?

Join over 500 women and men in conversations about the intersections and barriers of gender and race, and how women and men can engage for better partnership and growth.

National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Twin Cities Leadership Summit

Wednesday July 31 from 7 am – 3:15 pm CSTAmeriprise Financial, Minneapolis, MN

What’s going to get Twin Cities women to those top leadership positions? It certainly isn’t one-size-fits-all approach, but a combination of factors, skills and work put in to realize and harness opportunities. The right combination varies for each woman, but at the core, authenticity, resilience, a strong voice, and a healthy dose of business acumen, are what’s needed for women to excel. These leadership traits allow women to regain their power, and strive for what’s beyond their current roles.

Join us at the NAFE Twin Cities Women’s Leadership Summit in Minneapolis in July 2019, for highly engaging and practical sessions that will help you strengthen your leadership skills, and achieve career growth. Learn to Be Real. Learn to Be Resilient.

The opportunities offered throughout the day will be interactive, inspiring, and tangible in the tools provided. Attendees will explore what it means to be real and resilient through powerful storytalk workshops, leadership and skill building sessions designed to help you step it up, and keynotes that will motivate you to take it to the next level.

We are thrilled to bring to you this forward-thinking day of learning! Send your mid-level and high-potential/high-achieving women, where they will gain skills that will groom them for future leadership roles.
