Rasmussen University Hosts 11th Annual Women's Leadership Breakfast
Attendees to hear from Nora McInerny on redefining "what's normal" and how to navigate difficult conversations in the workplace and our everyday lives
Minneapolis (Oct. 21, 2021)—Rasmussen University, a university accredited by the Higher Learning Commission*, will host its 11th Annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast on Fri, Oct. 29 at 8:00 a.m. Central. This no-cost event will be held virtually this year. All are welcome to register and attend.
The theme for this year’s Women’s Leadership Breakfast event is Anything but Normal, which explores timely issues like progress, perfectionism and mental health. Attendees will have the privilege of hearing from Nora McInerny, an author, speaker and podcaster on redefining “what’s normal” and how to navigate many of the important yet difficult conversations we face today. As the creator of the award-winning podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking, McInerny has experience exploring complex topics with wisdom and humor. She has also written several books, including It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too), No Happy Endings and The Hot Young Widows Club.
“We are thrilled to welcome and hear from Nora McInerny—a dynamic speaker who is passionate about having difficult conversations,” said Staceyann Jibbison, assistant vice president of Campus Operations and Student Services, Rasmussen University. “In a time when nothing may seem normal, Nora will help us redefine the phrase ‘getting back to normal’ and will use wisdom and humor to teach us how to make space for messy emotions in our lives, relationships—and even in the workplace.”
The Rasmussen University Women’s Leadership Breakfast began 11 years ago as a way to empower women and deepen their leadership presence in all aspects of their lives. Rasmussen is a place where women and men have learned as equals since its founding 121 years ago. In previous years, this event was hosted 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 all over the country.
“Rasmussen University believes in the power of strong communities and knows the health and strength of those communities depends on the critical support and guidance offered by organizations that empower individuals and change lives,” said Jibbison. “We are excited to host our event virtually again this year, and we look forward to impacting even more lives during this inspiring event.”
The Women’s Leadership Breakfast virtual event will last one hour. Following McInerny’s remarks, audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a brief Q&A session with McInerny.
