About this event

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women’s achievements and challenge gender inequity. In this March Dialogue, we are interested in celebrating and understanding women as group leaders and as leaders within our community. We invite you to come and reflect on the unique gifts that women bring to group leadership, to explore what might keep women from confidently stepping into leadership within their professional lives, and to consider how we can support and promote women in leadership within our community. Wherever one finds oneself on the gender identity continuum, all are invited to participate in this discussion.

Charge: There is no charge for this event.

Note: All therapists and students in the therapy field are welcome.
