The Psychology of Money
Women, Power & Empowerment
Presented by Belinda Clemmensen, B.Sc., M.Ed.,PCC, Women’s Leadership Intensive 

We can’t talk about women’s empowerment without digging into what we mean by power. Women often have a tentative relationship to the word power because we don’t want to uphold the old “power over” paradigms that we’ve experienced.  In this workshop we’ll explore new definitions of power and challenge the old notions. 
Working with models and concepts developed by women, we’ll walk through the stages of personal power in organizations, reflecting on how they show up for each one of us. 
Finally, we’ll talk about how to share power and make concrete plans to do so. In the new thinking about power, we only truly become powerful when we shift from individualistic thinking and bring others with us into empowerment.
