VT Storytellers Take the Stage at WEOC on September 16

Do you love stories? Have you ever heard one told live?

Join us on the afternoon of Saturday, September 16th from 1:15-2:45pm for a one-of-a-kind “Moth-inspired” event, part of Senator Leahy’s 21st Annual Women’s Economic Opportunity Conference. It will be held at Judd Hall at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, VT.

In this full group session, the work of Change The Story comes alive through story-telling.

Five Vermonters (Prudence Pease, Judy Pransky, Lisa Ryan, Melody Walker Brook and Colin Ryan) will share their stories about overcoming the economic hurdles Vermont women face, the opportunities and challenges of business ownership, different styles and paradigms of leadership, and engaging as a man in the conversation.

Cary Brown, Executive Director of the Vermont Commission on Women will kick us off and Tiffany Bluemle, Director of Change The Story will moderate.

And, a special performance by two members of Muslim Girls Making Change – Lena Ginawi, Hawa Adam, and Balkisa Abdikadir.

You will have the opportunity to interact with each storyteller and working with CTS findings, you will emerge with a better understanding of how you can tell your own story – and participate in changing the economic story for all Vermont women.
