2021 LeanIn Luncheon Program

Our theme for the 2021 LeanIn Program is Communication (All Kinds, All Styles)!  As our work environments and communication requirements have changed in 2020, we’ve also discovered that what has worked in the past may not be as valuable or relevant when it comes to communication.  Our year-long program will cover a variety of topics associated with improving communication.  They will include:

  • Non-verbal communication in a video conferencing era
  • How to run productive, effective and efficient meetings
  • Negotiation
  • Recognizing bias in conversations – gender, regional, racial


A few of our confirmed speakers:

  • CC Sutton, International Work-Life Performance Expert & Speaker
  • Leah (Russo) Kasparek, SVP HR & Administration at Battalion Oil Corporation, Former Executive Board Member of WEN Houston
  • Kat Mann, Account Manager at Enerflex Energy Systems, Longtime WOGA Member and Lean In speaker
  • Jennifer Schaufele, Former Executive Director for the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG)
  • Jamie Dandar McKinney, “Staying Empowered Through Challenges” Keynote Speaker, Leadership Coach, Author of “Speak Up, Sister!”, WOGA Board Member and Lean In speaker


An annual Lean In program membership gets you access to all 12 monthly Lean In luncheons and a copy of WOGA Board Member, Jamie Dandar‘s book, Speak Up, Sister!
