Feminine intelligence: building a collaborative, compassionate and safer world – with Scilla Elworthy and Karen Lee Downes

This time we are living in, is disruptive and challenging, asking more of us than ever before.  Violence against women has escalated in our homes as well as where women publicly use their agency to protect what they care about. Divisiveness and despair is increasing.  At the same time, people are waking up and acknowledging that a new kind of intelligence is needed to shape our future, we call this FemmeQ.    

During our time together we will discover:  

  • Understanding what feminine intelligence really means 
  • How we can access feminine intelligence; ‘seeing the world with new eyes’ 
  • Why embodying and leading with feminine intelligence transforms the challenges we face  
  • How to practice the skills that are useful to address our most pressing issues
