Session 1 (choose one):

Lindsay Linton Buk

Join Lindsay Linton Buk for a deeper look into her most recent installment of Women in Wyoming, Chapter III: POWER, as well as exercises to create more space and power in your life.

Mila Stender

When do you say, “time out”? Do you sometimes struggle to find the time for yourself or family and friends? Balancing work and life is an ongoing challenge. We will talk about how to be a dynamic juggler with some innovative thinking and a few simple ideas.

Mandy Fabel

Do you love spending time in the outdoors? Sure! We all do! But sometimes feelings of fear or intimidation come into play for us as women as we embark on these outdoor adventures. This session will explore five tips for gaining confidence and having fun as a woman in Wyoming’s incredible outdoor playground. It doesn’t matter if you are a novice adventurer or an avid outdoorswoman, we all have something to learn from each other. Join in for equal parts laughter and inspiration as we become bad ass women of the backcountry.

2:30-3:30 pm

Session 2 (choose one):

Antonia Armenta-Miller

Ready to build your dream job? Find the confidence and pick up the tools for starting your own business from scratch. In this session, you will discover how to stir up ideas, create the recipe for success and explore the importance of research.

Melissa Butcher and Shelley Kinnison

Do you ever find yourself downplaying your expertise, second-guessing your judgment or questioning your credentials? You might be a victim (at your own hand) of imposter syndrome! Step into your power by learning to see those niggling doubts as a call to rise, rather than fall.

Kristin Wilkerson

These days it seems as though everyone who is anyone has written a book about professional development and becoming a better leader.  Just Google “leadership” and the results will include links to thousands of articles and blogs containing tips and techniques on growing your business acumen and leadership skills.  How do we filter through this information overload to find worthwhile resources on leadership and professional development to guide us on our paths to success?

3:45-4:45 pm

Session 3 (choose one):

Christi Haswell

You’ve decided you have the time and energy to take that first step into a leadership position, but you have lots of questions. How do you decide on the right role, whether it’s on a local or state organization or board?  What tools do you already possess to be successful? How do you develop the additional skills you want or need? How can a mentor help? Please join Christi for a discussion about taking that first exciting step!

Mai Bloomfield, Mona Tavakoli and Sarah Sample

Many of us have had, or know someone who has had, a life-changing experience after which, we are forever changed. Some of us may be in the middle of that journey right now. How do we handle these experiences? As a cancer survivor, Mai brings a unique perspective to the notion that our greatest challenges can give way to our greatest insights. She’s developed a method that will help you tap into your own personal experience, and draw out something inspired, cathartic, healing. No writing experience necessary!
