    Please join us for a very special discussion with author and speaker, Velera Wilson about empowering women in leadership.

    You're Absolutely Worth It:

    Shifting from Self-Doubt to Undeniable Confidence

    Date/Time: Tuesday, October 13, 5:30 - 7:30 PM

    Don’t miss this discussion with Velera Wilson, author of upcoming book, "You're Absolutely Worth It: Release Self-Doubt, Embrace Confidence, and Own Your Yes." Filled with fiery inspiration and practical advice, the book helps women shift past self-doubt to recognize their worth, own their voice, and pursue their dreams relentlessly.

    During the candid dialogue, Velera will share excerpts from the book, her experiences, and perspective on the challenges and opportunities women have to lead with confidence in their careers, relationships, and everyday life.

    You’ll walk away with:

    - Practical ways to break ties with limiting beliefs

    - Undeniable reasons you are worth what you desire most – regardless of where you’ve come from

    Come ready to ask questions and share your own life lessons - this will be an interactive, shared learning experience for all who attend.

    AWT will raffle off a copy of Velera's book to one lucky attendee!

    Overcoming Imposter Syndrome!

    Date/Time: Wednesday, November 11, 5:30 - 7:30 PM

    Price: Members: FREE | Non-members: $10

    Have you ever had the thought that your success is only a direct result of luck and not ability? Studies suggest 70% of people experience Imposter Syndrome at some point in their career. Anything that impacts so many people is worth taking the time to understand on a deeper level. Join us as we dive into the history of Imposter Syndrome, how it impacts various personality types, and what can you do to move past it.
