Presidio Dialogues Event Coming Up January 24

The Presidio Dialogues (www.thepresidiodialogues.org), a group that organizes “conversations for conscious business” in California is sponsoring an event this January 24 at 7pm in San Francisco. The discussion will focus on the theme “The Feminine and Leadership: Not Just Reserved For Women.” The discussion starts from the premise that leadership is sorely needed in the world today, but that there’s already too much of the traditional masculine, intimidating and forceful variety. Whether instilled in men or women, what is needed now is the more systemic, enduring, longer-term, holistic variety — what we normally think of as the feminine aspect of leadership. This dialogue will explore how men as well as women can feel comfortable embracing the feminine in leadership, not simply in style, but in context as well. The conversation starters include Paula Goldman, from the International Museum of Women; Rhoda Nussbaum, MD, Founder of Women Physicians in Leadership for the Permanente Medical Group; and Marilyn Steele, Ph.D., a Jungian psychologist. Registration for this event begins at 7pm and the conversation starts at 7:15 pm. The meeting takes place at Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, 747 Front St. (@ Broadway) 3rd Floor, San Francisco. Admission is $20 in advance by registering online; $25 in advance (by email, phone or check); $30 at the door. To register online, visit www.thepresidiodialogues.org/register.html. For more information, email register@thepresidiodialogues.org or call 415/249-1380.
