Gender Bridge Building – GW4W partners with GenderARC to provide a customized approach to addressing gender gap challenges.  Workshops, trainings and consulting through GenderARC will provide a safe and transparent way for both women and men in your organization to understand spoken and unspoken biases. Learn how to connect with a healthier leadership approach that incorporates the best of the masculine and feminine for more effective inclusion, better innovation and a more effective approach to gender equity. For more information see www.genderarc.com.

Women, Leadership and the Inner Voice – Women at all levels often struggle with changing the inner voice into something that can positively influence their lives.  The messages of “Not good enough,” “Not the right age,” “Not experienced enough,” “Not the right physical type,” and “Not doing enough,” can have a very negative impact on a women’s health and overall wellbeing.  That, in turn, impacts not only how a woman leads but her ability to lead at her best.  The inner voice also includes the often ignored fact that at least 25% of the women in the workplace have had real trauma:  sexual, verbal and/or physical abuse.  By meaningfully recognizing and addressing the inner voice, women can move towards a healthier, more authentic way of leading for themselves and their teams.  We make sure that the mental health and wellbeing side of this issue is handled in a professional and compassionate way. We work with organizations to then highlight the company’s benefits and offerings to better support women’s health and wellbeing in their working environment.  Learn more by emailing us at info@gw4w.org


Keynotes and Talks


Nancy Board’s presentation at EAPA in St Louis: “Women, Wealth, Wellbeing and the Workplace” was spectacular. One of GW4W’s main missions is based on the fact: ” women represent 50% of the workforce, thus it is critical that the next generation of women are better supported so they are more prepared to step into leadership positions”. It was impressive to see how this international organization, built on their four pillars of Research; Leadership, Inspiration and Mentorship, has created an incredible international movement to support women in all aspect of their lives.

As a researcher in the sexual assault arena, I was thrilled to see their research on how childhood experiences effect one’s potential for rape/sexual assaults. This is something that many of us in the MST & Sexual Assault field have suspected but to date have been unable to provide with solid empirical proof. I highly recommend that if one missed this presentation, that they obtain a copy of these slides. They offer an incredible trove of invaluable resources.

Nancy Board, Co-Founder and COO, GW4W – Keynote –
St. Louis, MO – September 2019

Having worked with Nancy as a colleague and collaborator for many years, I have come to know her values and customer-focused work ethic. Seeing her keynote at EAPA on Women, Wealth, Wellbeing and the Workplace brought together a lot of this rich experience, and I encourage others to join and follow Nancy and GW4W in this needed cultural shift.
