Women TIES February CNY Women Rising Weekend "Write the Past - Using Expressive Writing to Let Go and Grow"

Linda Lowen Featuring:
Linda Lowen
Always Wanted To Write

Saturday, February 24, 2018
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Always Wanted To Write Studio 316 Delavan Center 501 West Fayetteville St. Syracuse, NY

Reservations due:  February 22

$47.00  (Two hour session, coffee, tea and snacks)

Women TIES Equality Division is pleased to offer this very special program in Syracuse as part of our next "CNY Women Rising Weekend in February- Write the Past: Using Expressive Writing to Let Go and Grow."

Women TIES Founder Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham had a #MeToo experience in her first professional job in Philadelphia which she didn't discuss until taking 110 women to the Women's March on DC when other women shared their stories. A year later the #MeToo movement offered Tracy the opportunity to share her experience with others. Since then women affiliated with Women TIES have discussed their stories with her so we are offering this unique workshop.

For every voice out there sharing her #MeToo story, there are a hundred others who remain silent. You don't have to go public to heal. Learn how to take the first steps in writing down your story — just for yourself — in order to release its hold on you. In this two-hour workshop, writer Linda Lowen will describe the process of expressive writing to release past traumas, and explain how putting your experience down in words can help you let go. By applying a few simple storytelling strategies, you can move past lifelong blocks and grow into the whole person you are meant to be.

This workshop is for those who've never written before, or who simply want to write for themselves and are not interested in publication. If you're driven to tell your #MeToo story in a way that can impact readers and publication is your goal, WomenTIES will be offering another workshop in March with this focus in mind.

The event includes a two hour session with presentation by Linda Lowen plus time to write. Coffee and tea along with a few snacks. The studio is limited to 14 seats so make your reservation early. There is parking at the building.

Take the time to finally get motivated to write your story - whatever that story is - to set yourself free and open to new space inside you for 2018.

Women TIES International Women's Day & Rochester Event “Solutions to Customer Pricing Challenges”

11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It commemorates the movement for women's rights.While the first observance of a Women's Day was held on February 28, 1909 in New York, March 8 was suggested by the 1910 International Woman's Conference to become an "International Woman's Day." After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

Women TIES will celebrate International Women's Day with its Rochester region focusing on the topic of pay inequality.

In 2018 pay inequality remains a forefront issue facing women in business. Although the public thinks entrepreneurs can earn unlimited money by working hard and setting their own price, most don't realize when it comes to pricing women follow suit follow their corporate sisters by getting paid less. It is time to change this mindset and policy in 2018!

At the Women TIES Rochester Luncheon "Solutions to Customer Pricing Challenges," three established business women will share their mindset on setting their prices without lowering commissions or fees, how to handle prospective client objections and how to convert a proposal into a contract when the discussion is focused on money only. The event will also allow for a healthy dialog on this subject by giving the audience a chance to share their strategies and observations on this topic.

The three presenters include Jenalee Herb of Howard Hanna Real Estate, Lisa Powers of Boylan Code and Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham of Women TIES.

During Women's History Month, it is essential for women to have this conversation to help erase pay inequality still facing them today even as entrepreneurs. The buck stops here.

We are looking for one or two sponsors for this program if you are in the financial field or have a business you'd like to promote, contact Women TIES for sponsorship details at 315-708-4288 or info@womenties.com.
