Women's Design Salon: Faces of Leadership Event Recap

Earlier this month at the verynice Women's Design Salon: Faces of Leadership we heard from Anne Kim, founder of Equal Pay Company and creator of “Faces of Leadership”. We talked about how leadership affects us in it’s different forms and compared our ideas about leadership to what data about our demographics says.

The more you try to understand what motivates people, the better you can collaborate to achieve things beyond your own imagination.”

Through the “Faces of Leadership” game, attendees were challenged with evaluating who they consider their own personal leaders and the demographics these leaders belong to. Once they applied certain categories, such as ‘Race’, ‘Sexual Orientation’ and ‘Education Level’, participants were faced with the question if their personal leaders tend to fit into a certain niche and discovered that they have the opportunity to broaden their leadership demographics. At the conclusion of the game, participants shared select figures they admire and why, in an effort to introduce undiscovered leaders to each other. By the end of the event, attendees left inspired to broaden their leadership pool!


A very special thanks to all that contributed to the inspiration.
