The Roundtable is an initiative for women to connect and provide feedback on their business efforts in a safe community with the goals of personal growth and professional development.
This is a community, a council of sorts, that challenges, supports and pushes women to find solutions, discover insights and workshop their ideas. The focus is business, but the relationships extend beyond the business card. Once a month, the Roundtable gathers and two women “workshop” a business initiative for 45 minutes each. Through focused facilitation and a strategic feedback process, the “workshopper” has effectively escalated her initiative exponentially.
The members of the Roundtable are female professionals who are kind, smart and generous. They are diverse in age and diverse in sectors. The key is to have a council in fields that are varied, because too often we can get siloed in our own bias networks. So having an outside perspective that is neutral and that can help one think outside the box is invaluable.
