The Movement Starts With You

with Reshma Saujani, Uvinie Lubecki, Anna Kawar, Antoinette Klatzky & Zuleikha

Envision a new future filled with possibilities for personal and social empowerment — a future rooted in bravery, self-compassion and listening to our bodies.

To make a difference in the world around us, we first need to focus on ourselves.

Led by five inspiring women who are helping to shape what the emerging future looks like — personally and professionally — this day of dynamic talks and hands-on experiences will give us practical tools to connect with our individual power.

Let’s create the change we want to see in the world. Together.

Two ways to join: In person or virtually — we’ll host live-stream breakout groups where you can connect with others in real time.

“Teach bravery, not perfection.” —Reshma

We’ll talk with Reshma about ending our love affair with perfection and changing the world one brave act at a time. Reshma believes that all of us can become the authors of our biggest, boldest and most joyful lives.

Reshma Saujani, founder/CEO and best-selling author of Girls Who Code, initiates young women into the tech world. Her goal is to engage one million women in computer science by 2020. Reshma began her career as an attorney and activist — and she is the first Indian-American woman to run for US Congress. Reshma’s latest book, Brave, Not Perfect, will be released in February 2019.

“We need to be trained in a new core competency: compassion.” —Uvinie & Anna

Uvinie and Anna will lead us in an experience designed to show how our well-being, sense of purpose and leadership skills can be improved by cultivating connection in all aspects of our lives.

At Leading Through Connection, cofounders Uvinie Lubecki and Anna Kawar use their backgrounds in neuroscience and business strategy to teach teams the benefits of deeper connection in the workplace.

“When I wake up in the morning and think about my day, I can choose how I’m going to show up in my life, how I’ll respond and react in different situations. That’s a level of power.” —Antoinette

Antoinette will help us weave together learnings from the day. She will lead us through intimate group discussions and share practices we can use anytime, anywhere.

Antoinette Klatzky is the executive director and co-creator of the Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute, which promotes leadership in young women through self-empowerment, connection with others and community activism.

“Movement is a means of bringing the deepest intention into being.” —Zuleikha

Zuleikha will share innovative embodiment techniques that promote wellness through the art of movement. When we’re in tune with our bodies, we recognize what we’re feeling and respond more intentionally.

Zuleikha is a movement artist, performer and educator. Through her non- profit, Storydancer Project, she works worldwide to bring health, resilience and joy to women, children and families facing challenging life circumstances.

We the Change: Women Together is an Eileen Fisher LifeWork event series featuring remarkable women who are lifting others up — from the platforms they have built over the course of their lives and careers. Joining together, we enliven, embolden and inspire each other to do our best work and be our best selves — on both public and personal levels.

Women Together events are rooted in the innate power of connection. When women share stories and open up with each other — realizing their shared strength — there is a power that is built, a fabric that weaves together. Our hope, our intention, is that this fabric is what creates and sustains the change we need to see in the world.

The future is for You. For Us.
For Women. Together.

    As a VERY long-time wearer of EF clothing, I am delighted to see this additional dimension of the EF enterprise. Having beautiful, functional, environmentally-friendly clothing that fits real female bodies is inspirational in and of itself. To have workshops that help women reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives is a logical extension of what has come before! And, yes, the world needs us—now more than ever!!!! Thank you, Eileen, for making joyful clothing and helping us be fulfilled and contributing members of our communities. Would you consider coming to Minnesota? There are lots of EF fans out here in fly-over land.

  • Katharine Stone Ayers says:

    Thanks for your caring inspiration!

  • Beth Fletcher says:

    Great topic and focus for a day of reflection. Thank you.

  • Linda Cimillo says:

    I sometimes wonder what I can bring to others. With my dedication to the teaching profession, I realize that many friends seek my opinions and advice. I think it comes from being a good listener.
    I love that Eileen states.. “show up.” In today’s world it is most important to be present for others.
    Not sure what I am being called to do with my free time but I love the direction Eileen is endorsing. We have much LifeWork to do.
