Offer: Bioneers Cultivating Women's Leadership Trainings (CWL)
These 6‐day residential intensives bring together impassioned women from diverse cultures, ages, and backgrounds to learn from and with each other. Rooted in values of respect, humility, creativity, intentionality and inquiry, CWL trainings develop women’s leadership by:
Featuring experiential learning and transformative leadership practices including arts, ritual, movement and storytelling that help connect the personal with the structural, systemic and political
Consciously shedding insidious beliefs, stories and biases that can limit women’s leadership capacity and considering new ideas, narratives or frameworks in their stead
Surfacing and appreciating what women uniquely bring to reinventing leadership while integrating healthy feminine and masculine characteristics for full‐spectrum leadership
Prioritizing connecting across differences as an essential leadership skill
Connecting women to networks of diverse peers for ongoing coaching, influence, access and support
Emphasis is placed on: practices for skill‐building and leadership cultivation; strengthening both gender and racial justice lenses and analyses; making visible the legacy of imbalance reflected in our decision‐making, organizations, and society at large; and connecting towards collaboration across cultural divides, siloes and differences. Each cohort of 20 women is selected for their significant capacities to influence change in their communities and also to optimize diversity, with at least 30% women of color.
