Hey! We need to talk. There are a lot of people saying a lot of things and making a lot of changes and personally I’m feeling some type of way about it. But between my family and the caps lock button I’m finding it hard to truly find the space to express the things I’m thinking and what I’m feeling. Am I just suppose to sit on these emotions and keep my thoughts to myself? That’s not how change happens. My frustration left me looking for a place to go where I can share my opinions and talk with others who may or may not have my same views so that we can better understand one another. But alas- I couldn’t find where this existed. So I spoke with Jen and started facilitating Women Wednesdays.
Who?: You, me and anyone else who identifies as female that wants to join. Oh and I’m Johnna- a local Evolvement Coach who is hoping to bridge the gap between our current divided space. I’m basically just the facilitator here.
What?: Women Wednesdays is a safe space where women can come together to talk about the important issues that are on their minds. For example, the wage gap, diversity and inclusion, what it looks like to identify as female within a family and female beauty standards. We will have a different topic each month (feel free to make a suggestion!) and just talk. When?: Women Wednesdays happens the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30p It’s free however donations to the space are appreciated.
How?: Ok a couple of things to remember: This is a SAFE space. That means that even if you don’t agree with the person beside of you that you respect their opinion and listen with the intention to understand their viewpoint- not to snap back with yours as soon as they are finished talking. We are not going to have a debate. We are not trying to persuade anyone to say/do/think/believe a certain way. We are not going to argue. A difference of opinion are fine- yelling at one another is not. If this sounds like what you’ve been needing then please just register in advance so we know you’re coming. I am looking forward to talking with you!
