Raise Her Voice: Untold Stories of Women in the Workplace is a special International Women’s Day initiative focused on the celebration of the incredible voices within the Ellevate community. This event will be a story slam, with a twist. Speakers will be nominated, then selected through a voting process. Speakers with the most votes will be featured at a local Chapter’s Raise Her Voice event.
By providing women with a voice through this initiative, particularly those who don’t always get a chance to tell their story, we’re able to support one another on a whole other level. Raise Her Voice is a chance to be amazed by what some women have gone through and conquered.
My story is about what it takes to be a woman in a male-dominated workspace
The biggest lesson from my story is how we can build our internal resources, instead of relying on our external situation changing
The impact I want to make on the audience is that they already have what it takes, to make it, in any situation. They just need to become aware of it and nurture it.
My story is about always betting on yourself regardless of the cards you are dealt.
The biggest lesson from my story is… It has to be done! "I always get to where I am going by walking away from where I have been." Don't let mountains intimidate you. Embrace setbacks and let them inspire you to find alternate ways of moving forward to get to where you want to be.
The impact I want to make on the audience is the importance of being generous with your story. If you don’t tell it, no one will learn your lessons! We all have a duty to share our experiences and lessons with other women within our tribes. By sharing our stories, we not only provide secondary learning of life lessons, we impart wisdom that could light up a path in someone's darkest hour, and we affirm the unity of the tribe standing together shoulder to shoulder, for the good of humankind.
My story is about empowering women to speak up.
The biggest lesson from my story is: don’t be afraid to be yourself and speak up.
The impact I want to make on the audience is believe in yourself and in your ability to add value in the organization.
My story is about following your heart
The biggest lesson from my story is: pursue your passion, everything else follows.
The impact I want to make on the audience is getup and go for it, break barriers, go beyond your own limits.
My story is about how being courageous enabled me to “Beat The Odds” and live my truth...
The biggest lesson from my story is: “No one will believe in you unless you do”...
The impact I want to make on the audience is to reiterate that Success come to those who dare and act, so just do it!
My story is about owning your truth and building an authentic career.
The biggest lesson from my story of being a full time “virtual employee” is “don’t be afraid to own your story, show vulnerability and ask for ALL the resources you genuinely need to excel in your career.
The impact I want to make on the audience is: know and be able to articulate the value you bring to every table, especially in the workplace.
My story is about how I dealt with my miscarriage at work. My story is inspired by an article titled, 'I had a Miscarriage at Work', https://graziadaily.co.uk/life/opinion/miscarriage-work/
The biggest lesson from my story is: It's better to have the support of your colleagues than to keep it a secret. Also, the stigma surrounding a miscarriage should end. After all, one in four pregnancies ends in a miscarriage.
The impact I want to make on the audience is: There is an element of shame associated with a miscarriage and so people don't talk about it. Well, it shouldn't be because it is so common. Let's end the secrecy and taboo for good!
My story is about making a mark in a male dominated profession.
The biggest lesson from my story is perseverance.
The impact I want to make on the audience is: never to doubt yourself and take a risk.
