Opening a Conversation on Women and Power
Jewelry, throughout history, has been a symbol; a symbol for wealth, power and status. In this presentation, we’ll begin by exploring our stories about jewelry and what they convey about our power as women and the perceptions that the wearing of jewelry brings. Jewelry is an outward display and manifestation of power.

We will then turn to a discussion of other “power tools” that reflect who we are as women and that begin inward. We’ll also discuss tips for engaging our power tools more fully and how to overcome the obstacles that limit the use of our power.
