National Women’s Business Organization Mobilizes The Moxie In The Next Generation Of Female Leaders
FORT COLLINS, CO. (July 9th, 2013) - The Moxie Exchange Movement, a national women’s leadership organization where business and the coolest women you know collide, will host the 3rd annual MoxieFEST in cities across the United States during the week of July 15th. MoxieFEST is a leadership and mentoring event for girls between the ages of 10-18 to become inspired, understand what it means to lead others and recognize their own leadership abilities.
MoxieFEST is a part of The Go Girl Project, Moxie Exchange Movement’s “daughter” organization, and gives girls the opportunity to learn from the successes and flourish from the support of the business and professional women who make up the Moxie membership. Girls are able to attend the event free of charge as all sales of Moxie Exchange Movement products fund the programming. The Go Girl Project is an opportunity for Moxie members to pay it forward and become role models for the leaders of tomorrow by providing mentoring and leadership training for girls.
“Imagine if a successful, professional woman had tucked you under her wing and mentored you when you were younger. That’s what we’re doing with MoxieFEST,” said Maureen Berkner Boyt, founder of Moxie Exchange Movement. “We’re extremely excited about the theme and content for this year’s event and we’ll be teaching girls negotiation skills and how to ask for what they want – both critical skills for success in business and in life.”
Girls attending the event are invited by current Moxie Exchange Movement members and will receive training on negotiations skills, mentoring from Moxie members and have the chance to mingle with other girls involved in the project. The leaders of the local Moxie Exchange Movement groups partner with local non-profit youth organizations to invite girls to participate in the program, ensuring that girls who otherwise wouldn’t have access to or couldn’t afford leadership training are able to attend the event.
“We should all be striving be to become someone’s role model, the person they’ll describe when asked later in life ‘who influenced you.’ If we’re all consciously reaching for that goal we’ll be the great mentors these girls deserve,” said Boyt.
The 2013 MoxieFEST will be held in the following cities:
• Albuquerque, NM
• Boulder/Denver, CO
• Des Moines, IA
• Fort Collins, CO
• Madison, WI
• Rochester, NY
• San Francisco
As the Moxie Exchange Movement grows and adds chapters in new markets so will MoxieFEST. If you’d like to learn more about The Moxie Exchange Movement and how to get involved with The Go Girl Project visit www.MoxieExchange.com
