Men all over the world have taken this workshop and have been surprised by the results.

The cost:

$40,000 for up to 14 men

In Memorium  
Julia Slick

Julia Slick was not just a good friend for over 38 Years, She was
also a woman who's work you should know about.

In 1981 (when I was pregnant with Charlie) I met Julia through a
mutual friend. We quickly connected. I was attracted to her intelligence and her mid-western sarcasm. She was Witty and Brilliant.

She was the Assistant Director of the Midwest Race and Sex Desegregation Assistance Center out of the University in Manhattan Kansas. She hired me to train the "High Potential Women" Identified
in all the mid-West school districts. They were all to attend Women Moving Forward® to be ready. You see 80% of the School
Superintendents were going to retire in the next 10 years. All of them were men and white. The center's job was to make sure
women and people of color were in position to take over those vacant Superintendents slots.

We trained women in Kansas, Omaha, Illinois and St. Louis. Many of those women became Superintendents and Assistant Superintendents.  They were successful and it changed the face of education in the
middle of the country. It also gave us the name recognition and support we needed for a fledgling 3 year old workshop; Women Moving Forward@ Julia was a graduate of the program and a life long supporter.

Julia went on to run one of the most successful Trading Times Newspaper offices in the US. Armed now with business and education
experience she became the Top Executive in the Chicago Academy of Design & Technology and ECPI College of Technology in Newport Beach.

She was often, as most of us over 70 have experienced, the only woman in the room. She was sexually harassed and abused as a top level woman as all of us were at this time. She never lost her feminist sensibilities and always fought to raise up the women who worked for her and with her. She was a mentor's mentor to 100's of women.

We had so many fun times together in Philadelphia, Wichita, NYC,
Hawaii and Chicago. She was too sick to attend my 70th Birthday but she was at my 50th in Hawaii. She donned a grass skirt & a coconut bra along with Kathryn Aiken and Val Hodgson to do a hysterical roast of yours truly. And then there was the car ride around the Island that I heard about from everyone in the car! I won't go into that now.

I am sure she is watching me write this and laughing her head off
that,in the end, one whole issue of this newsletter is dominated by her memorial. I will miss her and her sense of humor and her support and guidance.

All I can say is Thank You Julia for 38 years of friendship.
May her Memory Be A Blessing.
