3:25 pm – 3:45 pm Ten Things You Need to Know about Heart Disease

Speaker: Ebony Travis Tichenor, program manager, diversity & inclusion, Boston Scientific

In the United States, one in four women dies from heart disease. And certain heart diseases are the number one killer of both women AND men. What are the most common types of heart disease? Do you know your risk factors and the symptoms of heart disease? What should you do in a heart emergency? Given the staggering statistics, it is time to find the answers to these questions. Attend this session to understand heart disease, and what it means for you as well as to learn strategies to reduce your risk and take control of your health.


3:50 p.m. – 4:10 p.m. Finding Zen Amidst the Corporate Chaos

Speaker: Dr. Jodi Ashbrook, serial entrepreneur, author & founder, The Yoga Movement

Yoga and meditation have been used for centuries to promote self-improvement. But did you know that your practice may also positively impact your business leadership skills? Whether presenting to management, dealing with a difficult negotiation, or overcoming an uncomfortable business encounter, Yoga can be harnessed as a powerful tool to guide you back to your place of stillness, and renew inner strength and balance—in and out of the studio setting. Attend this session to learn why and see live demonstrations of how you can integrate practice into your day right from your office!


Life Balance & Integration Coaching 

7:30 am – 5:00 pm

“Having it all” has become the subject of countless books, articles, debates and social media commentary, with passions running high in all directions. With such a wide spectrum of priorities, workloads and resources for women, it is impossible to define balance. In fact, many believe that the ideal doesn’t actually exist. We may not be able to “have it all” at once, but you can find a way to “have it all” over the course of your career. Take advantage of a private 1:1 Life Integration Coaching Session with an ICF certified life coach and learn how to do less “doing” and more “being!” This is not about theory — participants will address your specific and unique life situation to create a customized action plan for making choices that matter to you, right now.

Using valuable tools and exercises, you will leave armed with actionable takeaways to implement a life integration plan that addresses how to:

• Prioritize and integrate what matters most to you (and sort through the clutter in your brain);
• Make choices that matter today and accept trade-offs;
• Create relaxation and restoration practices;
• Build in sustainability strategies;
• And much more …

*Sessions are 20 minutes and are first-come, first-served — advance sign-up is NOT required!
