Learn how to recognize and be a “(S)hero”
Inspiring (S)heroes™, an uplifting half-day of learning, will take place Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 8 a.m. to noon, in Bldg. 240, Room 1416. Sponsored by Argonne’s Women in Science and Technology program, Fermilab Women’s Initiative and Fermilab Society of Women Engineers, the workshop is open to all employees at Argonne and Fermilab.
A (S)hero is someone who is motivated to inspire women and encourages them to be (S)heroes to others. (S)heroes are the women who hold up the world universally, and more often, hold us up in our individual lives.
Workshop participants will learn ways to:
- Expand their network of powerful, spirited women and men
- Take ownership of their own careers
- Commit to supporting the success of all women at Argonne and Fermilab
- Gain insight about ordinary women among us doing extraordinary things
The program will be presented by Maureen O’Brien, CEO of Global Women’s Leadership Forum (GWLF). In 2009, O’Brien launched GWLF, a certified Women’s Business Enterprise, focused on positioning Women’s Business Resource Groups as significant business levers and effective contributors to the leadership talent pipeline.
“This is a great way to partner with our colleagues at Fermilab in a program that will appeal to and benefit employees at all levels in both programmatic and mission support areas across each laboratory,” said Lisa Durham, director, Argonne Leadership Institute.
“Having attended one of Maureen’s (S)heroes workshops myself, I am excited about the opportunity for employees at Argonne and Fermilab to learn more, as I did, about energizing our community, being in the present moment and supporting our colleagues,” Durham said.
Registration is required. Deadline for registration is Friday, May 19.
