Please join us for our monthly board meeting to discuss our new year and also BPW Colorado‘s Legislative Conference in February.
Join NFBPWC for the first in a lecture series about what working in the wake of COVID will look like for women. This webinar will feature keynote speakers (TBA) and a question and answer session for all attendees. It‘s no doubt that work, and work for women in particular, has changed as a result of the global pandemic. What does this mean for business and professional women? How has coronavirus changed our working world? What dynamic steps can we take to empower ourselves in the new working environment?
Join NFBPWC and California’s Bay Capital District BPW, in partnership, for a timely conversation with Ruth Umoh, reporter at Forbes, covering all aspects of diversity and inclusion. Given the mass exodus of women from the workplace as a result of Covid-19—and the likely return en masse to the office post-pandemic— Ruth will discuss:
Navigating the “double-double shift” of motherhood and remote work
Why we’re seeing women flee the workplace; the bottom line and economic impact; and what it will take to retain this critical demographic in the workforce
What women want from their employers and how to request (and receive) those benefits (fair and equitable pay, promotions, meaningful work, flexibility, less burnout, and less administrative tasks)
Tangible strategies on how to lead with confidence and determine your market value (especially when making a return to the workforce)
Negating myths about gender inequity in the workplace
We’ll hear from women who have volunteered to share their personal experiences with gender inequity in the workplace.
The session will conclude with a live Q&A.

Today even well-informed health
conscious citizens are left to navigate a labyrinth
of dogmatic dietary regimens, misleading labels
and contradicting evidence that tries to place food
into polarized categories of good and bad. Most
U.S. citizens feel very disempowered around their
food choices. Furthermore, the “health food
movement” has been largely dominated by a
white middle-class, leaving out valuable
perspectives, and creating an image of “healthy”
food that feels irrelevant and exclusive to most. I
believe this cannot be remedied without a groundup, prolific movement that embodies the opinion
and realities of the entire U.S, population, and
looks to our diversity as our greatest strength. It is
not just what, but also how we eat that is the
foundation of our food culture, and this includes
the rituals and conversations surrounding meal
time, the combining of ingredients and spices, and
holistic approaches to supporting local food
systems. Eating is perhaps the simplest, yet most
profound activity that links human beings. It is
time to look to multicultural perspectives on
health and engage in a food culture revolution!
There will be a program accessible by Zoom! Bring your dinner/drink! We will be networking following the program!
