Join us on Mighty Networks.
Each session will open with a grounding or somatic exercise to help usher us into our shared space. Try to the best of your ability to have the time and space for the session, but if you can’t, we get it, and recordings will be made available to you.
What you get:
Each session will have a particular theme, lesson, and Guest Expert. You will also have access to our YWCA staff member, Liane Hernandez, who can help with technical issues, make sure that everyone’s questions get asked, and our community values of shared learning, respect, transparency, and courage are in place.
WLC22 and Mighty Networks are our space, so let’s work hard to make it brave, connected, and accountable.

All activities will occur in the Mighty Networks, including the Monday evening session and the Wednesday Q&A.
The weekly Q&A is an extra opportunity to get support from your guest expert and cohort each week to ensure that you’re making a lot of progress and as quickly as possible. Dates and times for the Q & A are on the Wednesday following the Monday session; we will do our absolute best to accommodate the group and expert trainer as possible.
It would help if you did not have to look for emails or messages about this course, as all the materials, videos, chats, and topic-specific content will be right here for you. But, just in case, you can reach out to Liane Hernandez at most times during the week for support and answers to your queries.
