WTS SF - Empowering Women Author Series

Boots_Boardroom

January 28, 2016                  4 to 7 PM

Break_RulesDid you know women hold just 11percent of the most senior-level leadership positions in U.S. Corporations?  This number hasn’t changed in over 30 years.

WTS, in association with Kimley-Horn – a WTS Corporate Partner – presents a career changing training and networking event.  “Break Your Own Rules” distills six faulty assumptions (or rules) most women follow that get in the way and delivers correlating new rules that promise to clear that path.

Enjoy a training seminar and cocktail hour with the author, Jull Flynn, M. Ed.

Street_Fight

Street Fight

Breaking the street into its component parts, Streetfight has pointers on protected bike paths, crosswalk space, and visual cues to reduce speeding. Achieving such a radical overhaul wasn’t easy and Streetfight pulls back the curtain on the battles Sadik-Khan won to make her approach work.

Examples explain how this new way to read the streets has already made its way around the world, from pocket parks in Mexico City and Los Angeles to more pedestrian-friendly streets in Auckland and Buenos Aires, and innovative bike-lane designs and plazas in Austin, Indianapolis, and San Francisco.

Networking/Meet-and-Greet/Book-signing| 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Location :SPUR OAKLAND 1544 Broadway Oakland, CA 94612

 

Author: Janette Sadik-Khan, former Commissioner of NYC DOT 2007-2013
