Feeling stuck? Pitch your problem to the group in monthly Swarm and let the hive mind help brainstorm a way through. Using breakout technology, members of the Emerging Women community can share advice from their own experiences, contacts from their trusted networks, and innovative, collaborative solutions that entrepreneurs and leaders just can’t come up with in isolation. Leverage the intelligence of the collective to dissolve barriers and keep you moving forward as a leader.
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.
