Join DWN & DISH Cares for a lunch & learn information session about the mentor2.0 program through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado!

Have you ever considered being a volunteer mentor for a high school student? On July 24th from 12-1pm DISH is hosting a lunch & learn information session about the mentor2.0 program through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado. Volunteering as a mentor can not only change the life of a high school student, but also your own! DISH has current staff who have been involved with mentor2.0, and we encourage you to attend this event to learn about mentoring opportunities!

The mentor2.0 program is a new, technology-enhanced way to mentor high school students through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado. Mentors are paired with sophomore students at Englewood High, Sheridan High, and the Girls Athletic Leadership School with the goal of providing support and guidance through high school and beyond. Pairs communicate digitally once per week based on college-prep topics, and meet in-person once per month for group activities and a meal. Consider joining mentor2.0 and positively influencing the life of a student in your community!

DWN Training: Communicating with Moxy

-THIS EVENT HAS PASSED-

Join DISH Women’s Network and The Moxy Lab for this impactful communications training. The Moxy Lab’s Founder, Shana Cordon, will be sharing a small piece of her organization’s expertise in the communication and personal presence. If you’re hoping to create more impactful communication, improve your active listening, or have a more powerful personal presence, this training is for you!


Training Description:

Women in leadership walk a tightrope. Seen as too demanding or too meek, too emotional or too cold, women must find an authentic balance in a male-dominated work culture.

In this interactive presentation, we’ll review what research tells us about standards in communication and Executive Presence for women. We’ll illuminate characteristics that distract from or diminish one’s credibility, present approaches and tools to increase presence and influence, and view communication challenges in the context of Mindfulness. With Mindfulness we can remain balanced and grounded, even in the most challenging circumstances. This is how we make an impact, we show up with the confidence, as our best selves, for a more rewarding career.… Read more and comment

Training Summary

Unconscious bias. It’s impacting all of us, all the time. Everyone wants a level playing field, but very few people understand the underlying dynamics that prevent that from happening.

We’ll walk through common unconscious bias tripwires that impact you, your team and your organization. And we’ll show you how to hack your biased brain and interrupt that bias every step of the way. When you get this right, you’re more effective, your team is stronger and you’re building a more inclusive world.
