9:15 - 10:45 am  Opening Keynote:  Own Your Power!  10 Key Strategies to Create the Future You Want  
Paula D JohnsonSpeaker: Paula DeBoles-Johnson, MPA, CCM

POWER, everyone talks about it. Many people want it, but for many people the notion of being powerful is an elusive dream. No one is going to give you power, you have to take it! Whether it's a new career, political aspirations, promotion or fame, success or failure depends on YOU. Use these 10 strategies that will help you create the future you want, by tapping into your personal power!

11:00 am - 12:15 pm  Community Over Competition: Women’s Relationships in the Workplace
Tina VSpeaker: Tina Rae VanSteenbergen

In almost every workplace, women have been taught to compete with one another first. She isn’t your friend, your community member, or even your colleague – she’s your competition, your rival, your barrier to success. The truth is, from a young age, society has trained us to build walls between ourselves and other women. It’s a simple (and justifiable) defense mechanism – and – study after study shows that women connecting meaningfully in the workplace is better. Better for the company, for the employees, for the industry, and for each of us as women. So let's start tearing down the walls that separate us. With a healthy commitment to bucking societal expectations and prioritizing genuine connection, we can stop creating competitions and start building community.

12:15 - 1:05 pm  Networking Lunch

1:15 - 2:30 pm  Mental Health & the Pandemic: Creating Positives Out of the Negative
Patty McAlpineSpeaker: Patricia E McAlpine, MSW, LCSW

Session information coming soon



2:30 - 3:30 pm  Closing Keynote - Post Pandemic Powers: Using Resilience for Future Success
Nina SimoneSpeaker: Nina Sossaman Pogue

We all became more 'resilient' in the past year. Now it's time to use that new strength for future success. Knowing we are all tired of 'pivoting' and change is a constant, Nina shares how we all adjusted, adapted and became more resilient and how to use and build on those new powers.

Nina expertly blends big data, current events and brain science research, into an energetic multi-media presentation. Using her own story as a backdrop, she shares a proven framework to harness adversity and strengthen resilience. A former World-Class Athlete, News Anchor and Tech Executive, Nina brings a wealth of experience and passion to inspire you to look at your future in a new way.

Join FSAE Members and Attendees for a YEP Networking Social after the Women's Summit from 4:00 - 6:00 at World of Beer - all welcome!
