Take Back Control of Your Career
There's power in saying "no". Learn how to wield it.
Join us for a transformative event focused on helping you step into the driver's seat in your career. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Linda Babcock, will share time-tested strategies from her book The No Club:
Putting a Stop to Women's Dead-End Work. You'll walk away with the tools to set boundaries and prioritize work that works.
Our panelists will discuss a range of topics relevant to women's experiences in leadership. Panelists include Amy Schultz, Co-Founder of Bolder Money, Celeste Glasgow Ribbins, motivational speaker, and Lorraine Schuchart, Founder & CEO of Prosper for Purpose.
You'll also have the opportunity to network with other women who are going through similar challenges—both at work and at home. You'll find a supportive community of like-minded women who understand what you're going through and are committed to helping you thrive.
Imagine waking up each day feeling energized, focused, and motivated. Imagine feeling empowered to set boundaries and prioritize your own needs without feeling guilty.

Linda has researched and written extensively on women in the workplace, women's finances, and more.
"She was always the first person to offer to help, which was great for everyone but her. I noticed she was doing a lot of work that no one else would do, and she wasn’t getting credit for it."

Ready To Reclaim Your Power?
Prosper for Purpose
You're asked to juggle extra tasks at work—but your male colleagues aren't
Your calendar is full of NPTs
You're wondering "What's an NPT?"
You find yourself saying "yes" to tasks that diminish your power and don't add to your social capital
You're in charge of party planning, note-taking, always getting the family's gifts, managing your partner's personal obligations, doing all the travel planning, figuring out what's for dinner - even when your partner is cooking it....
You identify as a people-pleaser
You are an HR professional and you're curious about NPTs in your organization
You are a lawyer or policy maker shaping gender and identity equality in the workplace
Yes! This event explores the social conditioning and systems that underpin the patriarchal models making it difficult for women to say NO. Dr. Babcock will share the behavioral research conducted and it's impact on women's health and finances. Even if your primary employment is not in Corporate workplaces, you will identify with the content to be discussed because, consistently, research shows women across all professions, industries and organizations do more non-promotable or "invisible" work than men.
HR and DEI professionals will appreciate the evaluation and nuanced discussion of the systems and dynamics that place hidden demands in the workplace. As professionals guiding and shaping the experience and values of a company's greatest assets - it's people - the information presented will provide meaningful and specific actionable metrics to assess how your specific organization's systems might be underpinning cultural biases that hurt women.
The event is focused on addressing concerns about how women are impacted by social conditioning and patriarchal systems, but the content is important to all genders and identities. Although not specifically marketed to men, some men may choose to join us. If you are male and have influence, positions of leadership and/or work with female peers, leaders or team members, you may be interested to understand how a woman's full workload may not be visible or equitably allocated.
This is a special signature event featuring Dr. Linda Babcock. It is an in person event offered only on October 26th in Brecksville, Ohio.
