Keynote – Playing Big: The Work of Our Time
Many women have the sense that they are in some way “playing small” – holding back their gifts and tempering their voices. Tara Mohr, poet, teacher, and expert on women’s leadership, will chart the key journey to which women of our time are called: the journey to playing bigger. We’ll discard the old, patriarchal model of playing big and define the new model women are claiming in its place. You’ll gain clarity on what playing big looks like for you at this stage in your life, and learn practical tools for playing bigger—tools for quieting self-doubt, unhooking from praise and criticism, and trusting your unique callings.
