Are You Ready to be a PowHER PlayHER?

Nov 21, 2016


If you were lucky enough to attend the WiC Networking Event in D.C. last August, you got to hear from BET’s EVP Michele Thornton. She shared with us her best-selling book “Stratechic” along with a challenge to take what we learned and get stratechic!

WiC is ready to take the challenge and we are inviting all the PowHER PlayHERs to join us. In January 2017, we will be offering a four-part playbook authored by Michele herself and guided by WiC Outreach Co-Chair Nancy Ridge. The sessions are designed to help you put what Michele has learned and executed into transforming your time, your relationships and your life objectives!

  • Session 1 – January 18th – 12:00 p.m. EST:
    •  Life Objectives: “If you don’t build your own dream someone else will hire you to build theirs.” Tony Gaskins Jr.
    • Time: “Time is foundation for greatness.” Victor Uzoma
  • Session 2 – January 25th – 12:00 p.m. EST :
    • Relationships: “Relationships are critical to your success.” Michele Thornton
  • Session 3 – February 1st – 12:00 p.m. EST:
    • Craft Your Story: “At Any given moment you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end.” Christine Mason Miller
  • Session 4 – February 8th – 12:00 p.m. EST :
    • Share Your Outcomes: How is your Stratechic plan coming together and working

This is a commitment to YOUR future. As Michele says, “Every woman needs to invest in herself.” Check out #Stratechic and if you didn’t get your signed copy of the book in DC, now’s your chance to get ready to be a PowHER PlayHER!
