The RiverBirch Project focuses on Women, Leadership, & Life! On the topic of Women, Work, and Family, two important events are upcoming:
- Having It All, a locally produced documentary, premiered in July, sponsored by KCTS and ParentMap, and then KCTS aired the film in August. If you missed it, there’s another chance to see it on September 24th. To see the trailer, and for more information about this honest and timely film, check here.
- Anne Marie Slaughter is coming to Town Hall, October 5, 2015, on the topic: Women, Men, Work and Family. Her 2012 cover article in the Atlantic “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All” re-ignited the current U.S. conversation and most recent ‘new women’s movement’ and prompted the start of our own dialogue and The RiverBirch Project. Ms. Slaughter is speaking on topics from her new book, Unfinished Business. Tickets and more information available at Town Hall.
RiverBirch Project Update:
We’ve taken an 18-month pause with The RiverBirch Project, and many things have ensued since our last event…The reasons for pausing can be summed up by:
My Coaching practice is thriving and has required even more time and attention. All the while, I’ve scanned and connected with others who are convening conversations on similar topics, to be able to bring these back when the time was right.
There’s also been a tidal wave of new offerings in print, social media, and events, on the topic of women, leadership, and navigating professional / personal lives. Truthfully, I paused to ponder: What’s ours to do in this space where there is now so much available?
In the social and print media, however, most of the conversation is along the lines of advice. Still, I believe there’s a space for convening a conversation without advice, but with dialogue, convening conversations for learning and awareness, and support…the original purpose for The RiverBirch Project. We will resume in October with a new RiverBirch event, and will subsequently offer these gatherings as there’s time and interest. Watch this site for future posts and the event announcement.
