Breakout Session

Introducer: Changing Narratives and Challenging Norms

Provider, nurturer, mentor, and supporter. They’re all roles that describe what you do. But, they don’t even begin to scratch the surface of who you really are.

In this empowering breakout session, you’ll explore the various labels that society often assigns to women, particularly those over 40, and how they can limit your potential as well as your self-expression. You’ll learn methods that will help you break free from conventional wisdom and redefine your own identity on your own terms. This engaging and introspective experience is designed to take you on a journey to help you rethink, relaunch, and reinvent the second half of your life with unapologetic authenticity.
