Wednesday, May 22, 2018
7 p.m. – 8 p.m.
In this one-hour conversation, Reclaiming Kindness: How Women Can Redefine What a Strong Leader Looks Like, Fran Hauser will help women — of all ages — unlock the key to kindness AND strength to reach their career goals.
She presents the scientific case for kindness and compassion (hint: it actually earns you more respect), shares real- life anecdotes and discusses why women are positioned – now more than ever – to own their kindness and transform the image of what a strong, successful leader looks like.
Fran Hauser is a long-time media executive, startup investor, celebrated champion of women and girls, and author of The Myth of the Nice Girl (April 2018). Reviews for the book are coming in strong. Arianna Huffington wrote that the book “Redefines our outdated notion of what a powerful leader looks like.”
Hauser has held senior positions at some of the world’s largest digital media businesses, including Time Inc.’s PEOPLE, InStyle and Entertainment Weekly, as well as AOL and Moviefone.
This program is co-sponsored by the Library, Books on the Common, RLAM5K and Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce and is part of the Noreen L. Papa – Mothers: Live Your Life series. Copies of The Myth of the Nice Girl will be available for sale and signing at the event.
