I have been networking with a number of woman’s groups within the Louisville Metro area to make more connections for my business. I attended my first meeting of the Southwest Woman’s Roundtable a group of woman in business that focus on their businesses in the Southwest part of Louisville. They meet each month to support each other’s business and have different speakers. The speaker at the meeting I attended was Colonel Pamela Stevenson – U.S. Airforce (retired). Her topic was the “The Power of me – Personal Leadership that Makes the Difference”
She highlighted the issues she faced as one of the rare woman in the Airforce (it was man’s world then and she felt it still is but we can change that as woman). She highlighted a Woman’s Power:
- Power of me is a declaration of self
- Build a team around you
- Believe in you
- Be bold leaders with confidences, courage, vested interest and tenacity
- Don’t get in your own way with excuses and negative thoughts.
She then recommended woman use their power to move your city and community forward in some way such as: empower other woman, empower girls behind us, and end racism. Pick a cause and move forward step by step. I enjoyed this inspirational speaker.
