Over the past decade, women from around the world have gathered at Omega’s Women & Power retreats to be inspired, informed, and motivated to Do Power Differently. If ever there’s a time for women across the globe to gather, share ideas, build community, and foster resilience, it is now. The world needs us to be outspoken, inventive, and brave. Now is the time to come together and redefine what it means to be a powerful leader in everything we do.
Power: it’s a charged word. It has come to mean the ability to wage control over others through domination or force. But that’s a worn-out definition that humanity can’t afford to live by. So what does it mean to do power differently? That’s what we will explore at this year’s Women & Power Retreat. We’ve gathered thinkers, artists, activists, and leaders to open our minds to new definitions of power, innovative ways of working and leading, and practical steps for releasing the untapped and critical wisdom of women. This highly experiential workshop is for women who want to use their leadership to create a caring, just, and sustainable future for everybody. Through reflection, dialogue, writing, yoga, meditation, and exploring nature, we delve into our leadership stories, learn from each other, and create a shared understanding of what is needed to bring greater consciousness into the world. Guided by expert teachers, we examine four women’s leadership essentials—values, voice, vision, and voyage—in an intimate setting.
