Join Rachel Schall Thomas (C’93), co-founder and president of LeanIn.Org, for a special webinar on how we can create a more equal world for our children.

Telling kids “You can do anything” is not nearly as effective as showing them they can. As parents on a mission to create a more equal world for our children, we are constantly battling age-old expectations that women should be caregivers and men should be in charge. All children should feel supported when they both lead and nurture—and changing these stereotypes starts at home. Join Rachel Schall Thomas (C’93), co-founder and president of LeanIn.Org, to learn the small changes we can make to create more equal homes, help our kids envision broader possibilities for themselves, and raise a generation of women and men who can be anything they want to be.

About the Presenter:
Rachel Schall Thomas (C'93) is cofounder and president of LeanIn.Org, an organization committed to empowering all women to achieve their ambitions. Under Thomas’ leadership, LeanIn.Org has brought the messages of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s bestselling book to a global audience, including a network of 20,000 small peer support groups in 73 countries. Before LeanIn.Org, Rachel cofounded and served as president and CMO of Subtext, the first collaborative reading platform for K12 classrooms (acquired by Renaissance Learning in 2013). Prior to Subtext, Thomas served as vice president of marketing for Playdom, where she oversaw the communications, marketing and user acquisition that established Playdom as an industry leader (acquired by the Walt Disney Company in 2010). Rachel has also led large-scale strategy and marketing initiatives for a number of well-known consumer and technology brands, and founded and ran a successful Web 1.0 recruitment firm called BrainTrust. Rachel graduated with honors from Georgetown University. She lives in Palo Alto with her husband Scott and two young children, Gavin and Haley.

In this one hour webinar, learn how the Design Thinking framework can help you, the modern marketer and communicator, create and launch more innovative solutions to building brands and driving action.

The elusive world of management is something we are never formally taught, yet expected to know and master throughout our careers. The shift from individual contributor to manager of people is both an exciting and overwhelming milestone in one’s career. As we grow within an organization, we are expected to have management skills in our toolkit. We often wonder, “If I’m not the one actually doing the work, then what am I supposed to be doing every day?”

Part 1 of this 4-part Management Bootcamp will focus on you – the mindset of management and how to make the shift from being recognized for what you do to being recognized for how you serve and support others to success. We will discuss both the art and science of letting go in a way that feels authentic and valued.

The topics we will cover throughout the series include: managing down, managing up, dealing with difficult personalities, navigating difficult conversations, giving / receiving feedback, how to coach someone to success, time / energy balance, and more.

The Presenter:
Valia Glytsis is CEO and Founder of The Paradox of Leadership, a boutique leadership education firm based in New York City and serving clients globally.

The only constant in the legal profession has been change: change in everything from firm business and compensation models to client relationships and billing practices, not to mention the ever accelerating pace of technological change.

Law schools often do an effective job of preparing lawyers for the practice of law, but they do not always provide their students and young alumni with the practical marketing, business, and other skills necessary for a fulfilling and successful legal career. The need for experienced lawyers to provide advice and mentoring to law students and young lawyers is critical to their success.

We invite you to join Curtis Romig (C'94), Partner at Bryan Cave, as he offers the benefit of his two decades of experience in the legal profession, including what he wished he had known about the practice and business of law while he was in law school and when he was a younger lawyer. His perspective includes:

-Having been in private practice before, during, and after the dot.com boom and the Great Recession
-Serving as his firm’s Atlanta hiring partner for three years
-Being involved in the recruiting, training and mentoring of young lawyers
-Assisting his firm with risk management issues.

Curtis has seen the legal profession in good times and bad, and has seen his original firm go through two significant combinations with other law firms.

Dean Brenner (C'91), is the President and Founder of The Latimer Group, an executive coaching and training firm focused on persuasive communication skills. After two bad career experiences, Dean and his wife Emily took six months off to travel, clear their heads, and plot their next move. Throughout the trip, they discussed a range of ideas, most of them impractical, before finally realizing a vision they wanted to move towards. While hiking in Glacier National Park, Emily said the magic words… "You have always been a good public speaker. Most people aren't. Just coach that."

And from that, The Latimer Group was born. Today the company serves a global client base of Fortune 500 organizations, with nearly $1 million in annual revenue.

In this session, Dean will share some insights about starting a business, germinating the idea, marketing and networking, relying on the advice and counsel of others, and risk (when to take it, and when to avoid it).
