Expanding the wisdom, visibility, and influence of women in business

April Breakfast

“Crossing Cultures in Today's World”
Featuring LueRachelle Brim-Atkins, Principal at Brim-Donahoe & Associates

In a world of stark political divides, it is easy to focus on differences that drive us apart.  Yet we are coming together in unbelievably inspiring ways. Cross-cultural expert, LueRachelle Brim-Atkins, is bringing communities together and creating shared experiences where comradery can be found among people from every walk of life, united to help others. As former Director of Training and Development at the University of Washington and now as Principal of her own company, she leads people to develop strategies to understand their unconscious bias and the impact that has on how we perceive our ourselves, our circumstances, and how we operate in the world. Her work delivers powerful learning on how to bridge the gap of cultural differences.

Join us for breakfast as LueRachelle invites us into her deeply personal experiences with segregation, and guides us to how we can develop a growing sense of community across cultures by: 

  • Releasing judgement.

  • Dismantling artificial cultural barriers.

  • Shifting what we do and how we do it.

  • Finding the courage to take the first step.
