Dogwood Alliance: Woods + Wilds: The Podcast!
Aug 17 all-day
Online

https://www.dogwoodalliance.org/2020/07/woods-wilds-the-podcast-episode-one/?fbclid=IwAR1i8UtIuKNXhpfQPJbkQB4jw5XW4tWGLyXBTqpSz3hWejTTWROWIeYOAa8

For the safety and well-being of our supporters, Dogwood Alliance will not hold our annual Woods & Wilds live storytelling event this year. It’s an event we look forward to every year because it’s an opportunity to celebrate the magic of forests with our community. We still wanted to find a way to bring that same kind of magic to people wherever they are, so we teamed up with SlayTheMic to launch Woods & Wilds: The Podcast! We will be releasing an episode every other Monday.

The podcast will sometimes offer tales of the forest and other times will be an interview with our guests about their unique connection to nature – often touching on the connection between hip hop and nature.

We were overjoyed to welcome our very first guest, Dr. Thomas RaShad Easley aka RaShad Eas, also known as the Hip Hop Forester and the Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, where he helps strengthen community diversity and develops programming around workplace equity. He’s also the author of the incredible article How Hip Hop Can Bring Green Issues To Communities of Color.

Pathways to Power
Aug 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
virtual workshop

Pathways to Power

Have you ever thought about – or been asked to think about – running for elected or appointed office? Has your first instinct been to say “no” or “not now”? We invite you to imagine what your leadership could contribute and to explore ways you can make that contribution real.
Join us July 21 and August 18 for an exciting new virtual coaching and mentoring workshop. In partnership with She Should Run, SCWIL is hosting a two-part workshop, Pathways to Power to encourage you to develop and implement a personal plan to activate your leadership.
This two-part virtual workshop is a coaching foundation to concretely identify your strengths and a guidebook for using them in your community. Women have been reluctant to run for office or explore other leadership possibilities for a number of complicated personal and systemic reasons. This is your opportunity to explore and plan for ways you can serve and lead.

Session 1: Mapping A Courageous Leadership Journey • Tuesday, July 21 • 12 Noon – 1:30 p.m.

Women will engage in self-discovery and learn strategies to help them identify their strengths and make a plan to activate their leadership potential. Participants will leave the session better able to:

  • Take risks in pursuing their personal leadership journey,
  • Recognize social and personal barriers to their own leadership,
  • Connect their current skill set with political opportunities,
  • Advocate for and support gender parity in leadership and political representation.
  • Determine their individual path to civic engagement.

Session 2: Building Networks • Tuesday, August 18 • 12 Noon – 1:30 p.m.

Women will learn how to get comfortable with networking, maximize the network they already have, and apply those skills to begin asking for donations and assistance in making their candidacy a reality.
Participants will leave the session better able to:

  • Engage current network in the cause of your candidacy,
  • Ask for donations of time and/or money from their current and expanding network,
  • Identify and pursue opportunities to expand their network.
