    Outspoken: Why Women’s Voices Get Silenced and How to Set Them Free

    Why is it so many women aren’t being heard - at work, at home, and even on the political stage? And what can we do about it? Too often women are criticized if they do speak up as being too loud or pushy. Some are not taken seriously because of the sound of their voice. If they remain quiet, they are dismissed as being too meek. Veronica Ruekert will help us understand our reluctance to speak up and give us ways to reclaim our voice.

    About our Speaker:

    Veronica Rueckert is the author of “Outspoken: Why Women’s Voices Get Silenced and How to Set Them Free”. She is a Peabody Award-winning former Wisconsin Public Radio host, a trained opera singer, and a communications consultant. At At Veronica Rueckert Coaching, she delivers keynotes, conducts workshops and works with clients to help them discover the full power of their voices and bring joy to the act of speaking. She also leads media training and national media outreach at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Please register no later than Thursday, April 9. Online registration will close at 5:00 pm on Friday, April 10, you may register or change your registration by email after the 10th.

    Get Onboard: Pathways to Corporate Board Leadership

    Session 2:Tuesday, April 28, 2020
    Get Onboard: Pathways to Corporate Board Leadership
    Lindsay Hammerer,
    Partner at KPMG and chair of Milwaukee Women, Inc.

    Join Lindsay Hammerer, Partner at KPMG and chair of Milwaukee Women, Inc., in a discussion about pathways to corporate board leadership to change the face and quality of leadership in the Wisconsin business community by increasing the number of women corporate directors. In 2018, 12 of the top 50 Wisconsin public companies had three or more women directors on their boards, an increase of 33% from 2017. While this is encouraging, there is still much work to do. This event’s discussion will promote the research concerning the value of diversity in corporate governance and management, and eliminating barriers to full inclusion of women in leadership positions, as well as focusing on the practical conversation of how to navigate and intentionally craft your pathway to corporate board leadership.

    About Our Speaker
    Lindsay Hammerer is a seasoned accounting and finance professional with 30 years of experience providing audit services to clients throughout Wisconsin and Illinois including public and private companies across all industry sectors with a focus on insurance and healthcare. Lindsay is a dynamic leader of KPMG Milwaukee’s recruiting team and KPMG Network of Women (KNOW) chapter, and has successfully served on KPMG’s Women’s Advisory board, a board of 16 partners from across the country that advise Firm leadership on how best to advance and retain women, helping the Firm to reduce senior associate turnover rates by 25%. Ms. Hammerer is also the chair of Milwaukee Women, Inc. whose vision is to achieve balanced representation of women on boards of directors to  maximize the performance of Wisconsin businesses.

    Book is “The Overstory” by Richard Powers

    Please RSVP to Kathy Jeffords

    About the Book

    The Overstory is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of - and paean to - the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
