Our combined experiences have taught us that our community is in need of more resources geared to preparing young women for their chosen professions as well as enhancing skills for the seasoned professional woman.  It has been our experience that young girls have to unlearn many unconscious behaviors taught in early childhood that might be counter-productive to their careers.  These behaviors are often subtle yet sabotaging.  For example, some stereotypical learned behaviors for girls include being polite, soft-spoken and compliant.   And while these behaviors are rewarded in childhood, they can prove to have negative consequences in their professional lives.


We believe that women need easy access to learn effective ways to navigate and advance in our competitive society.  This program is designed as a forum where women can frankly share their successful behaviors, thoughts and experiences that they believe have given them the competitive edge in the marketplace.  Our goal is to show how women can begin, with these ideas and resources, to grow into their roles as leaders.  This program will not only provide easy, free access to role models for success, but will also afford community leaders an opportunity to give back to the community.  When we help one person, we help all people.


The taping of the public access show will be held at the Lincoln COX Station located right off of 146N.
