Story Slam: Women Overcoming Adversity

Online • Pittsburgh

Listen to brave women as they tell their true, personal stories about overcoming the professional challenges, adventures, and mishaps that shaped their identities and careers.


Wed, Mar 24, 2021 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT


Given the events of the last year, it's never been more important to listen to the women in our world and in our community. Not to mention, March is recognized as National Women’s History Month, celebrating the accomplishments of American women. Ellevate Pittsburgh’s Story Slam event was postponed, last year, but now it's BACK!

Please join us to hear some remarkable personal stories of triumph, tribulation, and adventure from three amazing Pittsburgh women. Through these events, taking place all over the world, it is our goal to provide a safe space for empathy to flourish, and similarities and differences to conjoin. This is a chance to connect and understand that through sharing, and listening, we need never stand alone.

Tips for getting the most out of this event:

  • Try to be somewhere quiet that fosters good focus.
  • Reach out to other members before the event to introduce yourself.
  • Continue member connections and conversations after the event.
