The CLUB’s programming committee is excited to announce the quarterly programming themes for 2015.
Our 2015 themes are:
- Q1 New Year, New You
- Q2 Authentic Leadership
- Q3 Breaking thru the Silicon Valley Boys Club
- Q4 Celebrating Success
First Quarter - "New Year, New You" – We all start our New Year off with resolutions, but how can we actually keep them? Let’s start the New Year off right, beginning with our January event - “Stop Making the Lists of Competing ‘Shoulds’ — Amplify Your Life Instead!,” on January 21, 2015 from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Silicon Valley Pad. This event will challenge you to examine the guiding principles for your life, what is most important to you, and what embedded assumptions you may be carrying that prevent you from achieving the life you want.
In February, we'll move on to the subject of “Transitions,” and discuss making effective career transitions, whether you’re looking at moving laterally, advancing within your organization, or completely changing careers.
We'll close out the First Quarter in March with our Mentoring event and be inspired by mentoring success stories, learning how to “make the ask” to a potential mentor, as well as how a mentor can help you “make the ask” to move forward in your career.
Second Quarter - “Authentic Leadership” - Many of us want to be leaders in our organizations or industries, but don’t know how to take that first step. Others are already leaders, but want to progress to the next level or become better and more effective leaders. In the Second Quarter, we'll explore what makes someone a great leader, how to find and capitalize on leadership opportunities, and how to develop and hone your leadership skills and style.
Third Quarter – “Breaking Through The Silicon Valley Boys’ Club” - Despite all of the advancements made by women over the years, in many ways, Silicon Valley remains a boys’ club. In the third quarter, we’ll be looking at ways to break through that boys’ club, by changing the conversation to how women can gain power in the workplace, and examining the biases (both overt and unconscious) that can prevent women from attaining top positions.
Fourth Quarter – “Celebrating Successes” – The Fourth Quarter is all about reflection and celebration. We’ll look back at what we’ve achieved over the year, celebrate those successes, and look forward to even more progress in the upcoming year with the Club’s Anniversary Party in October and our Holiday Party in December.
Thank you to our programming committee for driving our monthly events!
