Story Slam – Voices in the Crowd

The hippest event of the year is coming up in November!

Come to Voices in the Crowd on November 13th to hear our fellow WBC members story slam.  The women will be telling their unique stories on stage at this one of a kind WBC event.

This event is inspired by the Moth podcast and the On the Fly Story Slam in Hudson, NY created by Christina Thyssen.   I had a chance to speak with Christina a few weeks ago about the Story Slam and our own Voices in the Crowd event, she said, “this is a good opportunity particularly for women in business who are discouraged from telling their stories- they kind of hide who they are at work.  Women don’t talk about their personal lives because it isn’t valued in the workplace but we all have these experiences.  We are asked to be tough and be like men but it doesn’t feel right.”

Come experience the sense of community that this event will evoke! Sign up here for this lunch-time event.
