Alumnae know that Meredith women are strong. Now the College is launching Stronger U — a new opportunity to help alumnae and other professional women become even stronger.
Stronger U is a series of non-credit workshops, seminars, and conferences. It’s designed for successful women who are seeking to develop their strengths, self-confidence, and leadership potential – and who want a professional development program at a place with a proven record.
Weekend classes are held on Meredith’s campus and focus on practical, individualized knowledge that participants can use immediately.
The initial workshops are Leading With Your Strengths, a day-long workshop focused on building strengths, and 2016 Strong, a training program for women interested in running for elected office.
Leading With Your Strengths
Saturday, October 3
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Learn how to make the most of your strengths through this day-long, interactive workshop on Meredith’s campus. You’ll identify your primary strengths and then find out how to use them to advance your career, develop your leadership skills, and collaborate more effectively with others. This session will be led by President Jo Allen, Director of StrongPoints Candice Webb, and Professor of Human Environmental Sciences Deborah Tippett.
2016 Strong will be offered monthly starting on October 3, and be delivered in Saturday sessions on November 7, 2015, December 5, 2015, January 9, 2016, and February 6, 2016.
Have you ever wanted to run for county or state office, but weren’t sure how to get started? This multi-partisan training program will prepare you to run an effective campaign. You’ll learn to develop a campaign plan, work with the media, and understand your strengths and challenges as a candidate and elected official. This program is led by political expert David McLennan, who has over 20 years of experience in preparing women for political office.
