Class Schedule for the week of May 11-15 2020 on FB Live
We’re applying the principle that Everything That’s Been Used Against Us Can Be a Source of Power
MONDAY: Taking Up YOUR Space is a Power Move— Kelly Diels and Sukie Baxter
Sukie Baxter is a Movement & Posture Therapist and the founder of Whole Body Revolution. She's the first person I heard use the phrase "take up space", and she means that both physically and socially. In this conversation/master class, Sukie and I are going to look at the relationship between how womxn & culturemakers take up space in our bodies AND the world. If you're ready to take up your rightful space in the world -- and in your own skin! -- this conversation will have epiphanies and practical insights for you.
THURSDAY: Refusing Pretty and Being Unapologetically YOU Can Be a Power Move — Kelly Diels and Ru Johnson
Ru Johnsonis the founder of Roux Black. She's an executive producer/creative consultant who produces events ranging from concerts to national festivals. She works in nightlife and the music industry, yet she does NOT conform to the norms about what it takes to be a woman in those spaces. She's not small, "doe-eyed", and soft-voiced -- and she's turned that into an asset. She shows up in every room and makes her mark at every table with "big jewelry, big hips, a big mouth and big dreams". Ru and I are going to talk about how deviating from racist, sexist norms about femininity and beauty can invite bias...and be a source of power we use to rise.
FRIDAY: Leveraging Your Difference is a Career Power Move — Kelly Diels and Jennifer McClanahan-Flint
Jennifer McClanahan-Flintis an Executive Career Strategist & Consultant at Leverage 2 Lead. She works with "ambitious women and people of color to help them navigate compensation, bias, and their career progression". Jennifer's philosophy is that your difference -- both your self and your social identity -- is your asset and you can leverage it to fuel your career. She was my coach in 2017 and really underlined to me that I had to stop fitting into what I thought success looked like and do it on my own terms. It's no coincidence that in the year I worked with her I tripled my income and doubled-down on being a culture maker. Our conversation will be about how you can locate your power and leverage it to grow your career and livelihood.
