  • Setting Ambitious & Creative Goals

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Event on 12/11/2018 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    Women often sell themselves short—what Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In calls the “leadership ambition gap.” In this interactive workshop, we break down why that gap exists, and how women can move past the obstacles to set and achieve more ambitious goals for themselves. This workshop creates a motivating space for workshop participants to investigate what being more ambitious about their career goals would mean for them—and to leverage both their left and right brain in aiming higher. At the same time, they’ll learn to avoid burnout by working smarter not harder and building lasting value for themselves through the investments of their time. Participants will set next-level career goals for themselves and learn practical strategies for achieving them, marshaling the support of others. This session is open to people of all genders, but will focus on some unique challenges women can face.

    About the Member Briefing

    Member Briefings are our monthly opportunity to talk to you about what’s happening now! Mark your calendars for the third Tuesday of every month at 3pm to stay up-to-date on what’s happening at Americans for the Arts and across the sector. This month's top is all about National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM). Cristyn will be joined by Ann Marie Watson, AFTA's Digital Communications and Strategy Manager. Cristyn and Ann Marie will give background on NAHM, speak about the various initiatives that AFTA and others are doing during the month, and let you know how you can get involved. 

    We firmly believe that our #AFTAmember network is one of our strongest resources, so after our update, we’ll open the floor up to your questions, comments, recommendations, and lessons learned – we hope you’ll take advantage of each other’s expertise! These calls are for you, so please let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to know more about by contacting Cristyn Johnson at cjohnson@artsusa.org
