Stepping Up Your Life Success with Jennifer Blair - 10-11 A.M. | Wednesday, September 6th

We're excited to kick off our fall webinars with Jennifer Blair! Below are the questions we encourage you to share with your colleagues to discuss in association with the webinar.

  1. What is your personal definition of success? What will you “get" when you get there? Why have you selected this dream or goal?

  2. What are you most proud of this year?

  3. What is your biggest disappointment, and what do you want to do about it?

  4. Looking ahead... what is the one thing you would like to be able to say about your life in January 2018? In 5 years?

  5. Self-care must be part of your business plan. How do you balance your personal and professional life? In what ways do you support your life and work? Any tips to share with others?

  6. Your positive thoughts create your inspired actions that lead to success. What inspired action will you take today? Tomorrow? Next week? Pick 3 things per day, every single day of the work week. That's 3 per day, 15 per week, 60 per month, 240 action steps you can still take before the end of the year. What will you commit to?

  7. What do you do will fear, doubt, uncertainty, limitations or roadblocks get in the way? Who or what will help you?

  8. Does anyone have any final tips, tools or success strategies that work for them that they would be willing to share?


Please share the below invitation with anyone in your organization that you think would benefit from the content.

Investing in Gender Equality: The Math Works - 6-8 p.m. - Tuesday, September 19th

BNY Mellon’s Return on Equality research, conducted in partnership with the UN Foundation with research support from McKinsey & Company, shows that investing in companies that advance gender equality in their workplaces, as well as through their products and services, has a direct impact on the bottom line. Gender equality is a precursor for growth – $300 billion worth, in fact, according to the research. Learn how best to direct your investment dollars in ways that support the issues you and others around the world care most about – and see your return on equality grow alongside your financial returns.

Make Your Mark - 6-9 p.m. | Wednesday, November 1st

Given the recent climate in the workplace, now more than ever we need to celebrate and support those who are encouraging greater gender parity in the workplace.

Watermark’s Annual Make Your Mark Awards are fast approaching and the timing couldn’t be better.  Watermark has been recognizing the women, men and the company who are changing the world of work for women everywhere for over 20 years.

This year’s signature event takes place on November 1, 2017 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency SFO.  The Honorable Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland will be the keynote speaker and is certain to be inspiring.
