Take It or Leave It? Ditching the Negatives from our Girlhood and Celebrating the Best of our Cultures as We Become Women

Don’t Just Lead…Inspire: A 3-Part Blueprint to Be an Unforgettable Leader

There are plenty of ways to lead. We can lead by merely dictating orders; we can lead by example. Christina believes in leading by inspiring—inspiring the way an artfully composed poem does. In her leadership presentation, she uses stories, comedy, and poetry to reveal a simple formula to being a leader who inspires, which means living the three ways a sonnet is formed: See challenges as puzzles to piece together, acknowledge limitations and find ways to be amazing within them, and act boldly and uninhibited by fear.

Invisible Disabilities Awareness

Disabilities that aren’t immediately recognizable by others are called “invisible disabilities.” They are chronic, severe health conditions that not only place substantial limitations on what a person can do, but they also come with certain societal stigmas. In three available programs on this topic, Christina Irene rips the shroud around invisible disabilities wide open through education and stories of her own personal struggles. She mixes her sharp humor with bold facts in a program that inspires sensitivity, companionship, and a huge jolt of hope for anyone impacted by an unseen disability.
