Women’s Leadership Colloquium Coffee Talk, April 11

The next Women’s Leadership Colloquium Coffee Talk event will be held on Tuesday, April 11, from 8 to 9 a.m., in person in the Jepson Alumni and Executive Center’s Kalnen Inn Living Room at 1119 Hanover St. Parking is available on Hanover Street. Please register for the event.

April’s Coffee Talk will be led by Dr. Keyanna Hawkins, discussing the topic of Speaking Power Over Your Life.

Our words are powerful. Are you harming yourself by talking yourself down? Negative self-talk, as well as our words when communicating with others can have a huge impact on our success. This session will focus on avoiding the pitfall of limiting ourselves by the words we speak. Turn negative speech habits into positive ones.

There is success through the power of our words!
