Attendees at the 2018 Women in Leadership Summit network at the coffee reception. This year's summit will be held via Zoom the afternoon of Nov. 13.

Womentum’s 2020 Women in Leadership Summit will be held via Zoom from noon to 5 p.m. Nov. 13.

The theme is “Women Who Lead: Equality, Courage & Compassion.”

“The Women In Leadership Summit is geared primarily toward people who identify as female, but we always encourage universal participation and welcome everyone regardless of gender to join us in our program,” Womentum’s press release said.

Womentum is a Jackson Hole nonprofit that aims to empower and connect women as leaders within their communities through Womentoring, a nine-month structured mentoring program, and other offerings, including the annual fall leadership summit.

The Nov. 13 summit will feature three 75-minute programs bookended by opening remarks at noon and closing remarks at 4:5 p.m.:

12:15 p.m.: "What Makes Being a Female Leader Different?” Former News&Guide writer and editor Melissa Cassutt will interview Teton County School Superintendent Gillian Chapman, Teton County Public Health Director Jodie Pond, entrepreneur and restaurateur Ali Cohane, and town of Jackson Community Engagement Specialist Susan Scarlata.

1:45 p.m.: “Fear of Change/Fear of Failure” workshop led by Sallie Felton, a professional certified coach who’s also an actor, radio host, facilitator and hypnotherapist.

3:15 p.m.: “A Conversation About Diversity, Equality and Inclusion" in collaboration with the Jackson Hole DEI Collective, a group of locals working to make the community more equitable, inclusive and racially just.

Advance registration is required. A watch party registration for 10 or more people in a group costs $150. To sign up as an individual costs $20. If that’s a stretch, you can request no-cost registration.
