If you are looking for some inspiration, you need to be attending one or both of the following events next week in Columbus featuring my friend & mentor who also happens to be the former head of the national Planned Parenthood, Gloria Feldt. Both are on Wednesday, October 12, in Columbus but at two different locations.
The first is a luncheon talk (noon to 1:15pm) at the Columbus Metropolitan Club. You can find all the details here but here’s the description (note that Jennifer Brunner’s Courage PAC is a partner in the event!):
Power inequality colors political and business process, outcome, efficiency and civility at every level. How can we affect change for the better? Discussion lead by Gloria Feldt joined by a panel with Julie Moorhead, Executive Director of Sales, Thirty-One Gifts, Mary B. Relloto, Founder and Owner, Dames Bond LLC, and Antoinette Wilson, Principle and CEO, Triumph Communications, Inc.
In partnership with: New Directions Career Center * Courage PAC * The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio
Then, there is an evening event starting with a 6:30 reception and a 7pm lecture, for the New Directions Career Center, at the Hilton Columbus in Easton. Gloria will be doing a book talk and signing that evening. You can see the details here.
Gloria offers examples from her own life as well as practice encouragement for all of us, in her writing, in her presentations and, fortunate for me, in her friendships as well. I have a City Council Road & Safety meeting that night so can’t be there but I hope you will go and/or spread the word.
