About the Event

Women often sell themselves short—what Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In calls the “leadership ambition gap.” In this interactive workshop, we break down why that gap exists, and how women can move past the obstacles to set, and achieve more ambitious goals for themselves. This workshop creates a motivating space for workshop participants to investigate what being more ambitious about their career goals would mean for them—and to leverage both their left and right brain in aiming higher. At the same time, they’ll learn to avoid burnout by working smarter not harder, and building lasting value for themselves through the investments of their time. Participants will set next-level career goals for themselves and learn practical strategies for achieving them, marshalling the support of others.

Mia Scharphie, the founder of Build Yourself Workshop is a creative agent of change, a do-er and big-picture thinker. She founded Build Yourself to help women in creative fields move past the obstacles that hold them back in the workplace. Mia is a trained facilitator and has worked on women’s advocacy for over fifteen years. She’s run a research effort on women in social impact design for the Harvard Business School, is a founding member of the Equity Roundtable at the Boston Society of Architects, and was named as one of Impact Design Hub’s Social Impact Design 40 under 40. Mia received degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Brown University. Her writings on issues of equity in design have been published in the Christian Science Monitor and GOOD.
