Women in Banking Workshop - 2017
Women in banking play an important role in society and economic growth. Just look at iconic women in the past, present and future. People like Anne Frank, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mother Teresa, Margaret Thacker, Pat Summit, J.K. Rowlings, Maya Angelou, Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, your mother, the teacher that first believed in you, the mentor that strengthened and encouraged you; and well, people like you. Leadership is more than just being in charge of an organization, it takes a mix of communication skills comprised mostly of listening; building relationships steeped in trust; seeking always to find balance in your work life and your family life; striving always to improve your teammates; creating cultures of diversity, dedication, commitment, courage, and contributions; and above all remaining true to yourself.
A women is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nuture, and transform - Diane Mariechild
In August 2016 KBA held its first Women in Banking Workshop in Lexington. This two day event covered topics included Striking a Balance, Women's Wellness, Workplace Etiquette, Go Create You. The event also included a networking reception. A health fair, and one of women's favorite things...jewelry!
Currently the event is expected to be scheduled for August 2017. Look for annoucements in the KBA's weekly Kentucky Banker Tidbit email.
If you have feedback or suggestion for the 2017 event, we'd love to hear it.
