These are fast-changing times that are upending much of what we did before. With social distancing, isolation, and the fear of the COVID-19 virus, people are struggling to figure out what they should change and how to make the right changes stick. As they emerge from this time, they are asking: what should I stop doing, continue to do, and start anew.

We must realize that our brains hate to change, often hijacking any efforts made to embrace the changes. Instead, we tend to flee them, fear them, or even appease them—but rarely gravitate to them. What to do to make "change your friend"? That is the topic of our webinar. Can you turn the unfamiliar into very familiar? Can you come out of the COVID-19 recession even stronger than before? Isn't it time to see the future through a fresh lens?

In this webinar, Dr. Andrea (Andi) Simon, a corporate anthropologist, thought leader, award-winning author, and excellent futurist podcaster will take you through a short journey to help you understand change.

In this talk, Andi will help you:

* Better understand why you and your brain hate change.
* Begin to visualize your future for the next two years.
* Learn how to make small wins to move you forward.
* Create the start of a ChangeMap process, Dr. Simon's proprietary tool, to help you begin your journey.

There will be time for your questions and a lot of doing, not just listening, so you can put pen to paper and begin to see yourself emerging from these chaotic times with new strengths.

This event is sponsored by the New York Women's Business Center based in Utica, New York serving 26 NYS counties. Their services are free. Find out more about them at www.nywbc.org

Media Sponsored by Women TIES: Sheroes and Champions "Energizing the Power of Your Vote"

Seneca Falls Revisited Featuring:
Sharon Nelson

Thursday, July 23, 2020
10 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Virtual Conference

Reservations due:  July 23

$59.00  (1 Ticket/Private Link for all 3 Days of Conference )
$500.00  (1 Key Corporate Link for all 3 Days for Entire Organization)

Women TIES, with its equality division founded in 2017, is proud to media sponsor this event.

CREW, Civically Re-Engaged Women, announces their upcoming conference "Sheroes & Champions: Energizing the Power of Your Vote."

The celebration of the "The Vote" is in observance of the Centennial of the 19th Amendment (Women's Right to Vote) in the United States Constitution.

The four conference takeaways will be The True Meaning of Sacrifice, Sisterhood It's More Than Just a Phrase, Coalition Building, and Progress. Speakers and conference registration can be viewed on the website www.crewomen.com.

In the 72 years that the Suffragist movement fought for the right to vote it's important to remember the sacrifices of the women on the front lines, most of whom have gone nameless and faceless. SHEroes and Champions of the movement were unsung leaders who were determined to elevate their voices to see themselves in a country that gave them no access to equality. This equality was articulated in the "right to vote" which President Woodrow Wilson and the 65th & 66th Congress passed in 1919 and subsequently turned over to the states culminating in ratification and adoption to the US Constitution in 1920.

After 30 years of being a political operative and strategist, Sharon Nelson has taken her knowledge and experience base to create CREW to empower Underserved and Underrepresented Constituency groups to seek real-time opportunities for inclusion and intersectionality. She is a certified Democratic National Committee Finance Director.

Thursday, July 30, 2020
9 a.m.
Rochester, New York or Virtually So Join Our Video If We Can't March in Person

Reservations due:  July 30

$25.00  (Registration Fee - Most likely money used for a Keepsake Item)


National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House
is going forward with the September 12, 2020 Suffragist City Parade!

Women TIES committed to gather a group of women entrepreneurs for the 2020 Suffragist City Parade late 2019 knowing we had some feminists and pro-female women entrepreneurs in our midst who would want to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of women's right to vote.

We just found out the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House is going forward with the September 12, 2020 Suffragist City Parade and it's going to be great! It will either be a combination of a 6-feet-apart
physical parade that is live streamed with pre-recorded videos or a completely virtual parade. The parade will be a Social Justice March Celebrating Hope, Courage & Change.

SO WOMEN TIES IS LOOKING FOR A TEAM OF WOMEN TO JOIN OUR TEAM! A team is two or more individuals who may cross geographic lines to create a "virtual float"(in the same way that we would group individuals into marching groups in a physical parade). Virtual floats comprised of an image, a collage, or a videos of their team. For the virtual parade, video clips should be 10 seconds or less.

If you want to be in the Women TIES virtual float, we'll gather women who register below for a video taping (outside safely) and submit it for the virtual parade. If by chance it is safe to march physically on September 12th, anyone who signs up will march with our group in Rochester.

No matter what, we'll film the video. We are encouraged to dress up in a uniform or costume that represents our group or profession. We can also encourage people to VOTE.

This is who we need to help us:
* A great videographer (aka talented video taker)
* Creative mind for our "dress"
* Women who want to celebrate our right to vote
* Women wanting to represent women entrepreneurs
* Most likely, women who like wearing pink!

Right now, we have a $25 registration fee to make sure we get women truly interested in joining us. This money will go towards something uniform we will have on us or wear or for food/drink when we take the video.

We encourage you to invite other women entrepreneurs you know to join our group no matter where they are from. Mostly likely meeting in Syracuse or Rochester to tape the video.

2020 was supposed to be the Year of the Woman until Covid-19 hit, so let's jump on board of the "virtual float" and show the world women entrepreneurs are still here to celebrate and offer products and services the marketplace needs.

About the Presenter

After Tracy Chamberlain Higgibnotham took 120 women to the Women's March on Washington in 2017 to ensure the new president and government didn't forget that women make up 52% of the population, Women TIES created their "Women's Equality Division" to participate in, host, and support pro-female, feminist focused events, programs, and initatives.

Tracy's inspiration to get involved in female leadership and rights stemmed from her "political" run as class president for her 9th grade class in 1979 forming an all-girls slate to challenge the all-boys slate at the time.

She persists....
