"SpeakUp" Series - Your input needed

March 2, 2017

Women Transforming Cities would like to invite you to be part of an exciting project!
The Speak Up Series: Combining activism with public speaking skills.
The series will be comprised of four sessions, each beginning with a local influential woman telling her story about how she found her voice followed by a Q&A.  After this, you’ll have a chance to learn and practice a new speaking skill to improve your confidence when speaking to groups. 
The idea for this innovative series grew from the current political climate and the heightened level of activism that has not been seen by many in our lifetime.  If you too have a thirst to express yourself about issues you are passionate about in a manner that will get your message across effectively, we would love for you to join us.  Learn how to use an intersectional framework to speak about important issues to a variety of audiences… from your local city council to your racist high school friend on Facebook.
We have many exciting ideas about how this will take shape, but we need your input!
