Thriving Women, Thriving World event Feb 19 2020 at Flyleaf Bookstore

Dear Colleagues,

Please join me and help spread the word about a very special event at Fly Leaf Books in Chapel Hill on Feb 19, 2020. 

Diana Whitney (of Appreciative Inquiry fame) and I, along with Barbara Fredrickson will discuss #metoo through an appreciative lens.

In Diana's words:  "I reflected long and hard about how my work, Appreciative Inquiry, might be helpful to women and men facing the realities, pain and alienation of #metoo. Through conversations with women and men around the globe, I decided to meet the challenge and write a book that could serve as a resource for people wanting to have much needed, and hard to have, conversations about abuse and inequality of girls and women."

Thriving Women, Thriving World: An Invitation to Dialogue, Healing and Inspired Action was written as a labor of love by nine women from Mexico, Korea, Canada, South Africa and the US. It is full of stories, appreciative questions and ideas for applications that can be adapted to a wide range of situations from book clubs to women’s groups, gender workshops and organization culture change initiatives. 

Fly Leaf Books in Chapel Hill is generously hosting us on Feb 19, at 7:00. Join us to explore ways to discuss dark issues by shining a light on how others have healed and transcended, on what we want more of and how we can together create a thriving world for girls and women. 

A key message of our book is “As women and girls thrive, so too do their communities and the world."

We look forward to seeing you on Feb 19th.

Kathryn Britton, Diana Whitney
