Restaurant Sue Ellen
Eteläranta 16, Helsinki
Join us for this inspiring Women’s Network event in which stories of courage and integrity help define what it takes to be a business leader today.
Drawing on her experiences working alongside the Women of Standing Rock and with women and men of all walks of life in 70+ countries, Humanitarian and Filmmaker Shannon Kring will share insights about what it means to be an authentically empowered woman in business and in life.
This powerful multimedia presentation includes tips on how any woman anywhere can embody the matrilineal way of being in order to create lasting peace within her heart, home, business, community—and ultimately, the world at large.
Shannon will be joined by some very special guests: the Women of Standing Rock, who captured the hearts and minds of the world when they risked their lives to stop the oil pipeline construction that desecrated their ancient burial and prayer sites and threatens their land, water, and existence. This special event will conclude with an audience Q&A.
Cost: EUR 40 with scintillating lunch by Sue Ellen. Cancellations possible until Friday, May 18.
