How to Empower Women in the Workplace
As more businesses take part in improving gender equality, as well as diversity and inclusion, it becomes imperative that women are empowered in the workplace. This means offering women positions, giving women the freedom and agency to learn new skills and become self-possessed leaders, and creating a safe, accepting environment for women to work in.
While many things go into creating a company culture that is inclusive, we’ve come up with a tangible list of activities that you can participate in, in order to empower women at work.
1. Attend the World-Changing Women’s Summit (Jan 28-30, 2019)
Register your women employees for the annual World-Changing Women’s Summit at 1440 Multiversity outside of Santa Cruz, CA. There, they’ll be gathered with hundreds of other purpose-driven female leaders to share wisdom and connect best practices for thriving in the conscious business world. For three days in the heart of the redwood forest, women will gather to discuss upleveling their leadership, their workplaces, and their impact on the world. Last-Chance ticket pricing ends on January 18!
2. Participate in an out-of-office activity that benefits women
Plan a fun corporate-team experience away from your work desk while also impacting women’s empowerment. When you book a Visit.org corporate women’s empower activity, such as a cooking workshop, volunteer experience, yoga class, etc., you will bond with your team (which can be made up of women, men, and others!) as you benefit a good cause.

Spark a conversation about women’s issues when you invite a woman leader to speak at your office to inspire your team to become their fullest, best selves at work, while also becoming exposed to diverse ideas and identities. When booked through Visit.org, many of the talks are also accompanied by a Q&A and/or activity to promote team bonding.
