It’s that time of year when we come together, we gather, and we express gratitude for all that we have and what’s to come. This month, we feature a special and intimate conversation where we will explore what our collective vision is for 2020. What do you want to do, to change, to be in the New Year? What shifts do you want to instigate and manifest in order to live in contentment and your own power?
We’re going deep this month, focusing on what it means to be a giver, how to gather as women and inspire change, and also how to give to one another in ways that are meaningful and lasting. This month is all about reflection and transformation, while staying true to our authentic self.
As we delve into the idea of giving and sharing, we’re going deep in order to unearth truths about our perception of generosity, helping others, and giving within our own boundaries. What are the boundaries that we have (if any) when it comes to giving? Are we honoring our own needs while giving to others? This topic goes right into the core of who we are as women, as givers, and perhaps even as “overgivers.” We’re talking about defining what works and what, as Brene Brown calls it, can become our “boundaries of steel.”
Emerging Women was launched in order to support the integration of business and feminine power to make a positive impact on the world. As a world traveller and Peace Corps volunteer, Chantal Pierrat witnessed first-hand the severe oppression and disempowerment of women that is present in most third-world countries across the globe. And as a sales and marketing executive in medical technology and manufacturing, she experienced the challenges and difficulties modern women face in the first-world business arena. Though the environments were quite different, the effects on women were similar: work more, get rewarded less, and feel insecure as we try to fit into a world created by and for men.
After 11 years as a publishing executive in the area of personal growth, holistic living and spirituality, Chantal combined her passion for women’s leadership, inner transformation, and making the world a better place by launching Emerging Women with the first-annual event in October 2013. Since then, speakers such as Arianna Huffington, Dr. Brené Brown, Dr. Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Tererai Trent, Kristin Neff, PhD, Esther Perel, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, Zainab Salbi, Reshma Saujani, Anne Lamott, and others women from businesses in all industries have come together to discuss the issues facing women entrepreneurs and leaders today.Visit Chantal's Website
Facilitated by Emerging Women’s founder, Chantal Pierrat, a Circle Up is a live virtual event that explores leadership and feminine power themes each month. Participants are guided to share deeply and support their circle sisters in stepping fully and courageously into living their truth.
