  • Develop a stronger connection to your own purpose, the source of authentic leadership
  • Explore the nature of shared leadership and practice reclaiming your own inner authority
  • Hone your relational intelligence, helping you navigate differences to enhance collaborations
  • Cultivate a practice of inner reflection to better align your intentions and behaviour
  • Investigate challenges with competition, power, self-limiting stories and internalized oppression
  • Effectively balance your personal self-care with your larger work

Join us to learn how to consciously evaluate and cultivate your own leadership capacities and connect with a circle of women in mutual honesty, support and compassionate challenge. Explore how to most effectively transform yourself and the world.

Nina Simons is a social entrepreneur who is the co-founder and co-producer of the Bioneers Conference. She translates her life experience into tools for serving the emerging leadership of others, and has focused increasingly on programming and teaching women’s leadership (while actively cultivating her own) since 1997. She helps to reveal the correlations between inner awareness and outer work, and celebrate the interconnectedness of environment, health, social justice and the sacred.

Toby Herzlich is a facilitator and a trainer with the Rockwood Leadership Program, focusing on assisting groups and individuals dedicated to building community assets and fostering progressive change. She trains women to be effective and heartfelt leaders in the Middle East, Bosnia, the U.S. and Canada.
One of the most worthwhile steps I have taken to becoming a leader in my own life, my community, my family, and my job.” – Former program participant
A truly transformative experience! I left with a greater understanding of my purpose and a sense of empowerment. I also left with skills and tools to help me navigate the obstacles that will likely surface as I follow my path.” – Former program participant
