The newest endeavor kick started by the svAWIS group is a Lean In circle known as The STEM Cell. The group began after many ladies at the seminar hosted this spring expressed interest in forming our own circle. The kick off meeting was held at the end of June and focused on getting to know all the members, talking about our goals and desires for joining lean in, and deciding on which of the many topics available our circle should work on first. The first topic sessions were held at the end of July and focused on Taming Adrenaline (aka How to overcome anxiety surrounding public speaking). At this meeting, members discussed their trials and tribulations with public speaking, watched a couple informative videos discussing on-the-spot remedies and how to create a history of success with speaking, and had a chance to practice thinking and speaking on their toes.
