Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM CST
We realize that not everyone is experiencing the effects of COVID-19 the same. In an effort to meet the needs of all our members, we are offering a hybrid in-person/virtual event to give those not in a high-risk situation, or who are comfortable meeting in person, the chance to connect and learn from Kelly Johnson, Master Instructor at Not Me! The in-person event will be limited to 15 people (or how many we can have according to current COVID-19 restrictions) and requirements will be followed. Masks are required. If you’re seated at a table, you can remove it. However, any movement throughout the space requires a mask.
We are also offering a livestream of the event for those who would prefer to attend virtually.
Being Bold and Naïve | Virtual Power Lunch
Date: March 18, 2021
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
TeamWomen is partnering with Preferred Speakers to offer an inspirational event with documentary filmmaker and TV producer Sarah Moshman.
Born and raised in Evanston, Illinois, Sarah will take us through how her love of filmmaking began, and how the camera gave her a voice and courage she hadn’t yet discovered. Sarah took her passions to film school, moved out to Los Angeles, and landed her very first job on the hit ABC show, Dancing with the Stars. While the job had its perks — 20 million viewers and a slew of celebrity talent to work with — Sarah felt like something was missing in her career and life. She set out to pursue her dream of making documentary films that can uplift, inform, and inspire.
Sarah will recount her experience of making her first film, The Empowerment Project, which shines a light on extraordinary women across the US — from a pilot to a mathematician, athlete, astronaut, four-star admiral, and many more. With humor and authenticity, Sarah will share the stories of these incredible women and share clips from her films to truly immerse the audience in these stories.
Sarah will then take us through the once-in-a-lifetime journey of her second film, Losing Sight of Shore, which follows the unbelievable true story of four brave women who set out to row across the Pacific Ocean — from America to Australia, over 8,000 miles! She will explain the risk she took in making the film, as well as the extreme dangers the crew faced on the voyage across the sea. Ultimately Sarah’s wildest dream came true — she sold the film to Netflix worldwide, and the film can be seen today in over 190 countries.
With a unique mix of entrepreneurial spirit and a drive to change the way the world perceives women, Sarah will entertain, enlighten, and encourage you to live your best life.
Here are some of the takeaways you’ll hear:
- We are all extraordinary — we just have to unleash our potential.
- It is so important to share our experiences and our stories — our voices matter.
- You can never cross the ocean without the courage to lose sight of the shore. You can leave a comfort zone in pursuit of a better version of yourself.
- We have the power to change our media landscape with our dollar and remote. We are more powerful than we could ever know.
Come feel inspired and empowered at this virtual lunch!
