A local nonprofit dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence will take a slightly different approach in the third installation of its annual female leadership event slated for Thursday.
Previously organized as a panel discussion, YWCA Glendale’s EmpowerHER event this year will take the form of an interactive conversation, according to the nonprofit’s chief executive Tara Peterson.
“Participants will really feel like they’re part of the program,” Peterson said.
The conversation will be led by Erin Loos Cutraro, chief executive and founder of She Should Run, a nonprofit geared toward helping women define their path to civic leadership.
Topics will include gender equity and how attendees can pursue their own leadership path as well as support others.
“It’s going to take us deeper into this conversation around female leadership,” Peterson said. “How do we become more self aware so we can champion others?”
According to Peterson, the event will offer a safe environment for people of all backgrounds and political affiliations. It is also open to men.
In addition to the discussion, there will be a hot brunch and networking opportunities.
EmpowerHER will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Nov. 7 at the Downtown Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard St.
Student tickets are $20 and advance tickets are $45. Tickets purchased at the door will be $50. For more information, visit glendaleywca.org/empowher.
