The idea surfaced with the release and book signing of How to Survive When Your Ship is Sinking in Chicago at an International Women’s Empowerment Conference. Dames’ contribution focuses on how a woman gets her mojo back when her personal world has fallen apart by using her life’s experiences as examples. She shares that more focus needs to be given to the positive during these times to help us remain hopeful; not only for women but men, who are also welcome to attend the event. One of her recent WINS she is enjoying is getting a call from Chico’s corporate office to welcome her winning dialogues in their stores. She’ll be sharing some of those stories from the Indianapolis and Atlanta stores at the upcoming event. Chico’s is a national ladies apparel store.
Priscilla Dames, the founder and CEO of a conflict resolution company, Wingspan Seminars, has dedicated more than 20 years to the community as a business owner, educator, and community activist. In recent years, she has provided workshops on topics such as Winning through Conflicts, Sexism and Conflicts and Parenting. Internationally, Dames has also provided training in Transitional Non-Violence to ex- militants in Nigeria, Africa.
Her affinity for supporting women also led her to found Wings on Women (W.O.W.), non-profit and newest Wingspan component, which is dedicated to assisting women with developing a safe environment and understanding the principles of self empowerment. The new component was celebrated by Skydiving for Women’s Issues to bring attention to problems women face today. (Hold ctrl +click to follow link) http://youtu.be/
