Raising Each Other Up: Women’s Leadership Symposium is Nov. 4-5; Registration now open

GREEN BAY, Wis—Women leaders are often recognized for their inclusive, team-building leadership style of problem-solving and decision-making, a style increasingly appreciated in today’s changing global world.

For the second consecutive year, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will help women learn from each other at the  virtual Women’s Leadership Symposium, the mornings of Nov. 4 and 5. Successful women leaders and executive coaches will help Wisconsin professional women come together and network, assess their strengths and learn how to create energetic alignment with their personal potential, power and possibilities. Executive coaching for wherever women are!

The symposium features known leaders who will share matters topical to the times:

  • Sheryl Van Gruensven, UW-Green Bay chief business officer/senior vice chancellor for Institutional Strategy will discuss “Leading in Times of Change and Uncertainty.”
  • Robyn Davis, CEO Green Bay United Way, will help explore “The View from the Other Side.”
  • Chris Kann, executive coach, will share “Four Secrets to Sustainable Success.”
  • Courtney Booth and Michelle Shutter, executive coaches, present, “Uncover Blocks and Live into Your Strengths: Empowered, Energized and Equipped During Adversity.”

The goal of the symposium is to empower women by building confidence in their essential characteristics of shared leadership, nurturance and forward values. The symposium creates a space for women to channel their power of collaboration to make a difference, especially in this moment of challenge and unknown future. And to have fun along the way. Individually women have power, but collectively they can have impact.

The symposium is being created and hosted by UW-Green Bay’s Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement. For more information on the Women’s Leadership Symposium, visit
