This week, Elizabeth invites us to consider the opportunity we have right now to build hope, for ourselves and others.
There’s no doubt about it – many of the women in this country have been through a horrific time in the last few weeks.
Seeing women be ignored, disregarded and silenced on the national stage has, for many of us, triggered trauma and memories of being silenced repeatedly in our own personal and professional lives.
One thing we can do right now to create hope is reach down within ourselves.
Reach down into your memories and recall the experiences and practices that anchor your values. Use those practices and experiences to find and nurture your best self. Remind yourself of your basic human dignity. And then, from that renewed place of groundedness and leadership, reach down to lift women who aren’t there yet.
This is the greatest calling in women’s leadership right now: to reach deep into ourselves to find our footing and then use that to lift others up. That’s how we’ll create hope.
Join us weekly on the podcast for all things related to women’s leadership, equity, advancement, inclusion and success in alignment with your values.
If you like what you hear, please support us on Patreon where you can get access to bonus content.
And if you’re interested specifically in how you can take the lead in the last few weeks before the midterms, it’s not too late to join Flip It Blue – our activist training.
This week’s session, Using Your Voice: Awakening Your Activist Story to Facilitate Change, will be facilitated by Intuitive Life and Story Strategist and Gaia Project Certified Coach Keisha Shields. She’ll help us understand how activism can be slightly different for introverts versus extroverts, identify and leverage our own primary activist leader stories, use our voices and stories to have difficult political and life conversations amidst high-trauma and high-anxiety daily events.
