SHAME, GUILT, & DENIAL: What's The Difference? Working WITH Them, NOT Against Them

  • Pizzeria Serio 1708 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

(Normally ABOUT WOMEN is on the 3rd Wednesday of the month but due to a schedule change, it is on the 4th Wednesday for this month only.)

I feel that women (including myself) feel guilty for a lot of things - - we have work guilt, mom guilt, I'm not doing enough guilt, I'm not working enough guilt, I'm working too much guilt, etc. Then let's throw some shame in on there which is similar but not. We feel like we are not worthy or don't deserve greatness. And then of course, there is denial. Let's just bury it, not talk about it, ignore it, and maybe, just maybe it'll all go away. If we don't deal with it, then it's not there. 

Let's talk about this. Let's figure this out together. Please join the judgment-free convHERsation. We will also hear from 4 different women as they share their personal story on this topic. All women that speak are regular, everyday women.

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.
