Women often sell themselves short—what Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In calls the “leadership ambition gap.” In this interactive workshop, we break down why that gap exists, and how women can move past the obstacles to set and achieve more ambitious goals for themselves. This workshop creates a motivating space for participants to investigate what being more ambitious about their career goals could mean for them—and to leverage both their left and right brains to aim higher. At the same time, participants will learn to avoid burnout by working smarter, not harder, and understand how better time investment builds lasting value. Participants will set next-level career goals for themselves and learn practical strategies for achieving them.

Speaker:
Mia Scharphie, Founder, Build Yourself, is a creative agent of change, a do-er and big-picture thinker. She founded Build Yourself to help women in creative fields move past the obstacles that hold them back in the workplace, and to make those workplaces better places for womens’ talent. Mia is a trained women’s empowerment facilitator and has worked on women’s advocacy for over fifteen years. She’s run a research effort on women in social impact design for the Harvard Business School, is a founding member of the Equity Roundtable at the Boston Society of Architects, and was named as one of Impact Design Hub’s Social Impact Design 40 under 40. She has spoken extensively across the country including at the Association of Community Designers, and A Better World by Design, as well as the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation, and the University of Pennsylvania. Mia received degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Brown University. Her writings on issues of equity in design have been published in the Christian Science Monitor and GOOD.
