PowerUp Workshop Series

The WomenLift Health PowerUp Workshops are a series of leadership workshops that are free, open-to-the public opportunities. The workshops will be hosted virtually on a quarterly basis and focus on empowering mid-career women working in the health sector. The topic and geographic focus will rotate with each event. We are excited to kick off the workshop series with this event on authentic leadership for women health professionals in India.

Building Your Authentic Leadership Event

This workshop will focus on the power of authenticity in leadership. Participants will be asked to explore and begin articulating their leader identity, one that connects deeply with their authentic values. Through highly personalized small-group exercises and interactive plenary discussions, participants will gain an enhanced self-awareness of the many elements that shape their leadership identity, which in turn shapes their leadership impact. 

In this 1.5-hour workshop, you will: 

  • Explore your identity and attain a deeper awareness of your authentic self by reflecting on and articulating what drives and energizes your leadership.
  • Leverage the power of this deeper awareness to connect with others within a safe learning space.

There will be an optional, 30-minute post-session Q&A/reception where participants are invited to further engage and continue the conversation with Vandana, the workshop’s facilitator. 

This virtual workshop will be conducted in English and is free of cost.

Registration Details

You are eligible for the workshop if you meet all the following criteria:

  • Identify as a woman
  • Live and work in India
  • Are a health professional (public health or global health)

Although all career stages are welcome to register, we believe participants who are at the mid-career stage will benefit most since content of the workshop has been designed with mid-career women health professionals in mind (10+ years of experience working in the health sector). If the volume of registrants exceeds our cap, women who are within the desired experience range will be given priority. 

Enrollment will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. Spots are limited – the session will have up to 100 attendees. Note that submission of a registration form does not guarantee a spot in the workshop. Registrants should await an email with confirmation of their spot in the workshop within 2 weeks of registering. We will ask you to confirm your acceptance of the spot. Once you have been approved and confirmed your acceptance, you will need to RSVP to guarantee your place in the workshop.
