    Belonging Conversations

    Part 3 of 4 part series on Social Status:

    Allyship: What can you do to lift up marginalized groups?

    Mid-Day Women's Alliance is pleased to host Imagine Fox Cities’ (IFC) Community Conversations exploring topics related to society and status, especially as they affect one's sense of belonging: 

    Class, Privilege, Allyship and Bridging

    You can access the conversation guides here:  https://www.imaginefoxcities.com/social-status-series/.

    Allyship is using your power, privilege and influence to make the cause of a marginalized group(s) your own. It is an active process. This requires that you educate yourself about the group(s), its history, challenges, strengths and accomplishments. It requires that you be willing to put yourself in the uncomfortable position of speaking up when needed and at other times creating space for people from the groups with which you are allied to have a voice. Our conversation will explore our perceptions and experiences with allyship in support of marginalized groups.

    The IFC Belonging Conversations offer a simple, sociable and structured way to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships. This new series will help us understand more about what social status means and how we can use our power and individual agency to create a more inclusive community in which everyone is valued and we all know that we belong.

    Plan now to attend all four sessions on Social Status--or whatever you can fit into your summer schedule--all sessions will be 11:30 - 1:00 via Zoom.

    Belonging Conversations

    Part 4 of 4 part series on Social Status:

    Bridging the Divide: Understanding while Disagreeing

    Mid-Day Women's Alliance is pleased to host Imagine Fox Cities’ (IFC) Community Conversations exploring topics related to society and status, especially as they affect one's sense of belonging: 

    Class, Privilege, Allyship and Bridging

    You can access the conversation guides here:  https://www.imaginefoxcities.com/social-status-series/.

    Bridging is the process of crossing group or ideological boundaries to better understand our shared humanity and accomplish common goals. It also requires overcoming our tendency to view those with whom we disagree as enemies. It requires a willingness to engage with those we believe to be different in some significant way and with whom we disagree without assigning motive, with the purpose of seeing them as individuals to better understand what they value and what matters to them. We do this while continuing to value what is important to who we are.

    The IFC Belonging Conversations offer a simple, sociable and structured way to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships. This new series will help us understand more about what social status means and how we can use our power and individual agency to create a more inclusive community in which everyone is valued and we all know that we belong.

    SPEED NETWORKING WITH MDWA

    We feel the need…the need for speed networking!

    Come join us on 7/21/21 for a power hour of networking.

    How does it work? 

    It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

    1. Sit across from another woman where you can briefly meet and share business information. 
    2. After 4 minutes, change partners to meet another woman.
    3. Repeat this process approximately 8 to 10 times and enjoy meeting other women and growing your network!

    "Networking:  It's really all about having conversations with the intention of developing relationships that add value to each other’s lives. Who wouldn’t want that?"                                       

    -- Gina Glover
