AGING. Yep, we all do it. Yet sometimes we don't want to do it nor do we want to admit our age. Whatever age we are, we ask the question - When did this happen?! or How did this happen?! And we all age differently. While we all do it, many of us "fight" the aging process. At least that's what society wants women to do. How many products are out on the market that are anti-aging? Why are we "fighting" the aging process?! It's like keeping a tree from growing. What's up with that? And that word "fight," it invokes this feeling that we have to be mad at aging. Then from mad, we get angry. Then after we are angry, we start the fight. All I can picture is waving my fists crazily in the air.... at nothing. Because aging just is. It's a thing that happens. That we do. And hey, I get it. I buy the creams and potions and lotions too. I'm part of this society.
Let's talk about this. Let's figure this out together. Please join the judgment-free convHERsation. We will also hear from 7 different women between the ages of 17 to 71. They will share their personal story on this topic. All women that speak are regular, everyday, extraordinary women. Each woman will have 5 minutes to share a bit about how they feel at their current age and thoughts through the decades
- TEENS: McKenzie Vertucci
- 20s: Ashley Scott
- 30s: Amy Nalette
- 40s: Nikki Nigl
- 50s: Ellen Rosner
- 60s: Joyce Wegmuller
- 70s: Carla Nigl
This is a judgment-free convHERsation. There will also be a Q&A portion of the evening. And if you want to just listen, that is ok too.
This is a safe space to hear different sides of the story.
What else happens at the ABOUT WOMEN events?
These events are unique. It's kind of like a support group for being a woman. It's a place to not feel alone. It's also a networking event in disguise. I say "in disguise" because it's not like other networking events where the first thing you talk about is your job. We talk about being human beings and our struggles and our awesomeness and then sometimes our jobs are talked about. It's a place to connect. To find other women that get it. We laugh. Sometimes we even cry. And that's ok. Because this is a safe space. Questions are asked to the audience and we have a group convHERsation. Sometimes the women in the audience ask questions too. Of course, you don't have to answer if you don't want. No one will ever make you speak. It's casual. It's comfortable. It's motivational.
