    Special Edition Virtual Executive Women's Forum with Angel G. Henry

    Presented by Barnes & Thornburg LLP


    In recognition of Black History Month (BHM) 2022, at our February Special Edition Virtual Executive Women's Forum (EWF) we will hear from "an only" or one of few. Angel G. Henry, author of Dents in the Ceiling: Tools Women and Allies need to Breakthrough, will share her story, and the stories of other diverse women, particularly African-American and Black women, about being the only, such as the only woman or the only woman of color in STEM industries, especially tech.

    Recognized as a thought leader on the Agile mindset, Angel will highlight critical career-enhancing guidance gleaned from her book. She will also facilitate an interactive session with attendee participation to identify practical and actionable steps to increase inclusive workplaces. Angel will guide attendees on how to build their diverse networks and an active ally toolkit.

    This extended program will also include a casual but crucial conversation with Angel, led by Linda Calvin, our Director of Executive Women's Forum and Angela B. Freeman, a former President and current Emeritus member of Women & Hi Tech. 

    Event Agenda

    • 11:00am-11:30am- Welcome and Opening Remarks
    • 11:30pm-12:30pm- Keynote and Interactive Exercise/Activity
    • 12:30pm-1:00pm – A Crucial Conversation with our Speaker

    Zoom details will be sent to all registrants 72 hours and 24 hours prior to the event.

    Angel G Henry has over 25 years experience in Corporate America, with a background in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, and over 15 years in the project management discipline. Her knowledge of why women and minorities are oftentimes missing from the C-Suite will enable STEM and IT leaders to help advance the conversation of inclusion and make REAL change in their business cultures and work environments. Learn more about her work to amplify women's voices and create active allies. 

    Guests are encouraged to purchase a copy of Dents in the Ceiling through Bookshop.org

    Please also sign up for a free companion journal on Angel's website.

    According to research findings reported in Linda Babcock and Lara Laschever's Book Women Don't Ask:

    Women Don't Like to Negotiate

    • In surveys, 2.5 times more women than men said they feel "a great deal of apprehension" about negotiating.
    • Men initiate negotiations about four times as often as women.
    • When asked to pick metaphors for the process of negotiating, men picked "winning a ballgame" and a "wrestling match," while women picked "going to the dentist."
    • Women will pay as much as $1,353 to avoid negotiating the price of a car, which may help explain why 63 percent of Saturn car buyers are women.
    • Women are more pessimistic about the how much is available when they do negotiate and so they typically ask for and get less when they do negotiate—on average, 30 percent less than men.
    • 20 percent of adult women (22 million people) say they never negotiate at all, even though they often recognize negotiation as appropriate and even necessary.

    Let's flip the script for women and use our power to negotiate!

    In this session: Whether it's claiming a seat at the table or getting a new process put into place, negotiating in the corporate world is an important skill. While we are often quick to negotiate for others, we do not always feel equipped to negotiate for ourselves. This session will focus on how to equip you to prepare and practice for negotiations, provide tactics for emotionally charged or high-pressure situations, and how to develop a mindset that will enable you to do so.

    Women & Hi Tech's 3 Part Virtual Professional Development Series, led by Emily Shaw, will be a structured set of virtual interactive workshops that provide ongoing group training and application opportunities for small groups to work together to make big change.

    • Each virtual workshop will be 75 minutes and will include large group and small group breakout session discussions.
    • Small group follow-up work will also be provided after each workshop. This will be facilitated via pre-recorded videos and sent to small groups to lead discussion and complete provided exercises on their own time.

    The objective of the workshop series is to help participants develop skills and abilities that may currently be overlooked. It is designed to take participants from awareness to knowing to skill-building applications.

    Join us for one, two, or all three sessions!

    Special Edition Virtual Executive Women's Forum: A COVID-19 Update With Dr. Vivian Cintron

    We are pleased to announce a special edition Executive Women’s Forum to be led by a leading health expert and authority in all things COVID-19, Dr. Vivian Cintron, on February 25, 2022.  

    In February 2021, Women & Hi Tech hosted a Special Edition Executive Women’s Forum on the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Kristina Box briefed attendees on vaccinations, variants, and safety practices. We were excited to share updates about how we could navigate the pandemic and see light at the end of the tunnel. But a year later, we continue to see surges and the spread of COVID-19 variants.

    So, on February 25th, we are fortunate to have Dr. Vivian Cintron share a COVID-19 update with us from 11:30 am -12:15 pm.

    Topics to be discussed include:

    1. Current COVID Data

    • Strains development and mutations: What does it mean?
    • Data: Patient morbidity and mortality across the US and in Indiana
    • Current Therapies

    2. Vaccination and Efficiency

    3. Travel and Meetings Guidance and Advice

    Because the information is essential for the health and well-being of our members and guests, Women & Hi Tech is offering free registration to all who wish to attend.

    Additionally, we invite you to submit questions in advance upon registration.  Questions we do not get to during the session will be answered and posted after the session on the Women & Hi Tech website.

    Please register today. Also, share with colleagues, clubs, students and others who wish to get more facts about COVID-19.

    Creating buy-in is ultimately about influencing others, not making demands on them. If you need to build support to get something done or must work collaboratively with others over the long haul, it's worth the investment in honing your skills. One of the most critical business and personal skills is getting buy-in for your vision.

    So how do you create buy-in? Start with Why.



    Simon Sinek has a famous concept of the "golden circle" to inspire others. This is about lifting yourself out of what you do and how you do it in order to think about why you do what you do.



    In this session: Oftentimes, when we believe our organization should make a change, we have a natural tendency to tell our peers or leaders why we should make the change and drive home the potential benefits of doing so. However, while we have made the most convincing case possible, no change occurs. We will focus on why that happens and how to get better results.

    Women & Hi Tech's 3 Part Virtual Professional Development Series, led by Emily Shaw, will be a structured set of virtual interactive workshops that provide ongoing group training and application opportunities for small groups to work together to make big change.

    • Each virtual workshop will be 75 minutes and will include large group and small group breakout session discussions.
    • Small group follow-up work will also be provided after each workshop. This will be facilitated via pre-recorded videos and sent to small groups to lead discussion and complete provided exercises on their own time.
