Changing the Game: Women of Color Use Their Power to Become Future Leaders

:: On Tuesday, November 7th, 2017, Breaking Glass Forums is bringing together incredible women of color leaders, thought provoking workshop facilitators and committed ally advocates in support of a one-day program designed to help all of us play a bigger game. Participants will engage in deep dialogue, meet future champions and get equipped with practical strategies to not just talk about change but to make change real.

The kind of change that women, especially, women of color, have been striving for their entire lives. Join us at the 2nd annual Women of Color Leadership Forum if you’re ready to activate change inside your organization to embrace more diversity and inclusion in leadership.

“Change is not something we should fear, and we have the tools in us to face it and embrace it.” ~ 2016 WOC Leadership Forum Attendee

This special event will welcome 200+ women of color and their allies. Attendees will enjoy mentor circles, engaging panels, workshops and plenty of networking and fun. Program highlights include:

Heather Hiles, Deputy Director at the Gates Foundation and former CEO of Pathbrite, will talk about her journey to leadership, why she’s so passionate about equity in education, and share why women of color need to drive change within themselves as well as how to drive change within your organizations to advance more of us to leadership roles.

A power-packed panel of women D&I leaders will candidly discuss the reasons why there’s been little focus on women of color as a community, how we can be more intentional about moving forward, and what we could be doing to close the gap as a community.

Panelists include:
