“Don’t compare your behind the scenes to someone else’s highlight reel”
Living their values of female collaboration, four female-focused communities are coming together this International Women’s Day to organise the first in a series of Beneath the Surface panel sessions. The Merit Club, Lily Advisory, Spacemize and ToGetHer Further believe it’s time to look beneath the surface of the images of success we see on social media, and share the full story of women’s journeys.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
For our first Beneath the Surface session, we are exploring our journeys towards 'Finding Ourselves' and how we have all overcome individual challenges in order to build successful businesses we run today and how we built up the courage to find our own paths and not be defined by our relationships or social expectations.
It’s so easy to see images of success, but it’s harder to know the full story. It often remains hidden 'beneath the surface' how much those we admire and think they have it all had to sacrifice and what real challenges they had to go through to get where they are now. We will explore questions around how our relationships have changed over time as a result. We will question if we can maintain a healthy work-life balance or if it is not even on the agenda anymore. As well as delve into exploring if this 'successful life' is what we thought it was going to be like before we started our businesses?
Come hear our stories, and share your own perspectives, as we go Beneath the Surface.
