April Young Bennett, motivational speaker

As we celebrate the Women’s Suffrage Centennial, it is a great time to look back to what we can learn from the past as we work toward a better future.

April Young Bennett, author of Ask a Suffragist: Stories and Wisdom from America’s First Feminists, is a motivational speaker who can speak at your event about what modern leaders, activists and change-makers can learn from bold women from history and what she has learned about changing hearts and minds as an advocate for women, children and underserved populations. Themes include:

  • Leadership: How do we define our priorities?  How do we motivate people?
  • Collaboration: How do we build our team? How do we find our niche?
  • Diversity: How do we work with people who are different from us?  Why do we need to?
  • Women’s Empowerment: How do we makes our voices heard? How do we break the glass ceiling?
  • Teamwork: How can we support our collaborators? How do we de-escalate conflict?
  • Resilience: How do we cope with setbacks?
  • Self Care: How do we balance it all?
