Creating, Cultivating, and Sustaining a Culture of Inclusion Is Everyone’s Charge
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change...”Mahatma Gandhi
Popular WIFLE Speaker!
As we move through our careers and life, we often try to figure out ways to make changes to better ourselves. We tend to gravitate towards New Year’s resolutions or lofty goals that would produce massive results but also require massive change. These look great on paper but are only executable given perfect circumstances. The changes we make to achieve our goals aren’t always sustainable for the long haul and when reality hits, our motivation wanes. This presentation shares effective strategies that produce meaningful change by understanding boundaries, exploring curiosity, digging into our emotions, creating triggers that help us be more mindful, and living with intention. Learn how to Live a Great Story by exploring what you want to learn, experience, and accomplish in this life and how you want to feel while you are doing it.

The ability to control emotional expression can have a direct effect on a woman’s ability to advance into leadership positions (Brescoll, 2016). This workshop will educate participants on the current literature surrounding the topic of emotional display rules. This topic is important because women often must show up in public venues with a certain look; particularly, the way they display facial expressions. Arguably, when women leaders are seated at the table, they often must refrain from showing too much emotion to be perceived as credible leaders. The focus of this workshop is to armor women with perspectives from observers who may cast them in an emotionally negative way and to empower women to continue to choose to show up in an intentional way.

Offices of Inspector General: What They Are and Why They Rock! We may become your new best friend!!!
Many individuals do not understand the breadth and scope of the work of OIGs, or are even aware of the types of investigative work OIGs become involved with, or the assistance they provide to investigative personnel. An investigation may start with an individual or a group but could blow up to a nationwide, public facing or emotive issue. This session will provide greater recognition or the work OIGs undertake in areas such as fraud, waste and abuse, ethical and financial integrity, administrative wrong doing, contractor and personnel improprieties, data integrity, and more.

Goal Setter: A Comprehensive Guide to Create Goals and Boundaries
Women in the workforce are booked and busy – at work and home. Work/life balance isn’t realistic. It is never balanced! Life sometimes just gets in the way! Even when it doesn’t, many of us find ourselves overwhelmed with societal norms and social media/TikToks of women who seem to have it all together. The pursuit of perfection has led many women to throw their hands up in frustration when they are faced with preparing a resume for that coveted promotional opportunity that finally comes available. This workshop was created to give women the tools, confidence, and motivation to get in the game. After this session, attendees will receive handouts, participate in group activities, and benefit from the presenter’s verbal presentation detailing just how close you are to achieving your goals! You just need guidance and actionable steps to get you there -- so you can live the life you imagined.
