Rasmussen University hosts 11th Annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast

MINNEAPOLIS – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Rasmussen University, a university accredited by the Higher Learning Commission *, will host its 11e Annual Women’s Leadership Luncheon on Friday, October 29 at 8:00 a.m. Central. This free event will be held virtually this year. All are welcome to register and participate.

The theme for this year’s Women’s Leadership Breakfast is Anything but normal, which explores topical issues like progress, perfectionism and mental health. Participants will have the privilege of hearing Nora McInerny, author, speaker and podcaster on redefining “what’s normal” and how to navigate many of the important but difficult conversations we face today. As creator of the award-winning podcast Terrible, thanks for asking, McInerny is experienced in exploring complex subjects with wisdom and humor. She has also written several books, including It’s good to laugh (Crying is cool too), No happy endings and The hot young widows club.

“We are delighted to welcome and hear from Nora McInerny, a dynamic speaker with a passion for difficult conversations,” said Staceyann Jibbison, assistant vice president of campus operations and student services at Rasmussen University. “In a time when nothing seems normal, Nora will help us redefine the phrase ‘back to normal’ and use wisdom and humor to teach us how to make room for messy emotions in our lives, in our relationships. and even in the workplace. . ”

The Rasmussen University Women’s Leadership Breakfast began 11 years ago with the goal of empowering women and deepening their leadership in all aspects of their lives. Rasmussen is a place where women and men have learned on an equal footing since its founding 121 years ago. In previous years, this event was held in the Minneapolis area. Last year, due to COVID-19, Rasmussen moved the event online, allowing the University to expand its reach to community partners and women across the country.

“Rasmussen University believes in the power of strong communities and knows that the health and strength of these communities depends on the essential support and guidance provided by organizations that empower individuals and change lives,” said Jibbison. “We are thrilled to be hosting our event virtually again this year, and we look forward to making an even bigger impact on life at this inspiring event. ”

The Women’s Leadership Breakfast virtual event will last one hour. After McInerny’s remarks, audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a brief question-and-answer session with McInerny.
