How can you lift up other women?
LadyDrinks plans three dinners
LadyDrinks rings in International Women’s Day with a dinner series. The Montreal dinner is February 13th. The London dinner is March 3rd, The Milan dinner is March 5th. But as we march our way to the days, I have a challenge that we all as women can engage in.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY IS MARCH 2020
Admittedly, International Women’s Day isn’t until March 8, 2020. But in the last two weeks, I had the privilege of engaging with several women who have shared some valuable ways we can lift other women up.
Kristy Wallace, CEO of the Ellevate Network, spoke on a panel at the women’s collaborative hub Luminary yesterday on the topic of best practices when it comes to networking. In this digital age, she doesn’t believe that all networking has to happen in person. She is an advocate for reposting, retweeting, resharing the accomplishments of other women. “Sometimes it’s easier than talking about yourself.”
Author and networking expert Kelly Hoey was our fireside chat guest last Thursday at LadyDrinks. She wrote the book “Build Your Dream Network” challenging women to build and activate different networks at different junctures in their careers. “Networking is about generosity and trust,” she shared. We engender both by engaging in the above activity listed by Wallace.
So in the lead up to the dinners, starting Feb 13th, I have a plan. Read on to learn how you too can lift other women up–without getting on a plane.
According to scientists, women are actually better at tasting wine than men. Yet women are often overlooked at the restaurant table when it comes to ordering and tasting wine.
Yassmin Dever of Sotheby’s Wine Advisory has developed educational programming to empower women to own the wine list and speak confidently and intelligently about wine.
