Verbal Self-Defense for Women

Tickets available!

Have you been mansplained, talked over, interrupted, and had credit taken for something you just said by a man in the boardroom?

Have you been told to smile more or to soften your language? Do you fear your colleagues secretly think you’re a b*tch and don’t know what to do about it?

If you answered yes to any of these statements, please join us for this workshop as we introduce the framework of verbal self-defense and how you can use it to speak up, regain power when you feel powerless and build healthy working relationships with men.

In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of verbal self-defense that will help you:

  • ask for the things your heart desires but has been too scared to say aloud

  • put forward your ideas and projects in a male dominated board room

  • confidently address catcalling, unwanted sexual innuendo, mansplaining, interrupting and credit taking

This workshop is taught by women’s empowerment champion, Laura Khalil.

Laura Khalil teaches women to awaken the power they have within themselves and use it to become their best advocates. She helps women who have stayed silent in the face of mansplaining, interrupting, over talking, credit taking and minimization, become better negotiators, advance their careers and experience awesome relationships with men. 

Laura has spoken to audiences at The Moth, Women 2.0, Intermitten, Ladies Get Paid, Bamboo Detroit, Creative Mornings, Zingtrain, Consumers Energy and more on women's empowerment, developing self-confidence, courageous living, finding clarity in your life, career growth, relationship mastery and productivity.
