ATLANTA, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Consciousness Economy (www.consciousness-economy.com/) today announced its inaugural Women's Purpose Retreat (www.consciousness-economy.com/womens-retreat), developed to empower and encourage C-Level / senior, female executives to effect change in both their personal and professional lives. Led by Jessica Joines, Founder of Consciousness Economy, the retreat will take place September 23-25 in Atlanta, GA. The carefully curated retreat will bring together women leaders who are committed to leading and living with purpose.
The Women's Purpose Retreat will explore important purpose topics including gender equality, female empowerment, employee wellbeing and the power of corporate values to drive impact. Attendees will be challenged to "dare to believe" by pushing the boundaries of personal change to become more effective leaders and mentors. Participants can expect to receive, among other key learnings:
- INSPIRATION: Inspirational speakers, motivating workshops and intimate panel conversations.
- TRANSFORMATION: A process of self-discovery and personal development to become more deeply connected to their own purpose and in turn a better leader.
- ACTION PLANNING: Actionable learnings to accelerate purpose at their companies.
"Recent studies show, companies who have a higher sense of purpose are fueling economic growth and driving greater profit, with women often leading the charge," said Jessica Joines, Founder of Consciousness Economy. "However, purpose starts with the individual. When leaders are more deeply connected to their own purpose, the impact they drive multiplies. That's why, in addition to focusing on business purpose, we're providing attendees with a personal transformation experience – to push past barriers and advance and their own development. At this transformational time in society where women are at the forefront of change, we are excited to host the first annual Women's Purpose Retreat."
This year's retreat features speakers including:
Suzy Batiz, Creator and CEO of POO~POURRI
Suzy Batiz ignored her instincts and played by the "rules" for the first four decades of her life. It was her second bankruptcy at 40 that propelled her on a spiritual quest, where she discovered the lost art of tapping the body for stored creativity and ideas. So, she threw the rulebook out for good and founded POO~POURRI in a way that was, well, radical.
