"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent." - Madeleine Albright

"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future." - John F. Kennedy

The Leaders Co-Lab, The Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation and Tully NY Mayor Beth Greenwood are hosting a half-day workshop for women in all levels of politics who are interested in working together to strengthen our collective impact across the government bodies we serve.  This workshop is open to all who support the idea that women working together in politics can catalyze positive change. 

We will provide a thought-provoking, interactive program to build awareness and practice new ways of working across boundaries to affect positive change.  In this session, we will explore how we can work together to "play a bigger game" and lead collectively.

The Bigger Game is a model that activates and harnesses the natural hunger that people have for more meaning and impact, guiding them toward a clear shared purpose, and moving them into bold action.  

Collective Leadership is a way of leading that leverages both the individual and complementary strengths of those in any group or human system to achieve powerful results when aligned by a shared purpose.

Our true goal for this workshop is to plant the seeds of a "bigger game" we can play together and to begin to build our collective capacity to lead positive change at all levels of government. 

This program responds to the growing need for leaders at all levels in organizations to work collaboratively and lead collectively. 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."  Margaret Mead

"The world will be saved by the western woman." The Dalai Lama

About the Women in Politics Co-Lab (In Formation)

This membership-driven community is for all of us who want to build on the legacy of women before us like Matilda Joslyn Gage - with a shared purpose to demonstrate that women working together in politics can catalyze and achieve positive change in today's complex world. We are the leaders who believe that women can and must lean-in to be the bridge-builders, seed-planters, and midwives of collective, conscious, compassionate leadership & collective impact in our democratic process, and indeed in creating a future where all those who follow will thrive and flourish.

About The Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation (Sponsor, Advisor, Benefactor)

The Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation is dedicated to educating current and future generations about Gage's work and its power to drive contemporary social change.  Matilda Joslyn Gage was a progressive visionary of woman's rights and human liberation.  As Gage was part of a much broader community of social activists in the Finger Lakes/Central New York region devoted to abolition, women's rights, free thought and the separation of church and state, our mission includes promoting an understanding of the Finger Lakes/Central New York Region as a wellspring of progressive social change, advancing the idea that this legacy is something in which to take pride and on which to build our region's future.
