Commemorating the Centennial of the 19th Amendment: 100 Years of Voting Rights and Civic Engagement

Presenter:
Michelle Witte, Executive Director of the Minnesota League of Women Voters

Did you know that Minnesota can claim the first woman to vote in the nation, after the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920? And that we also hold the current record for the highest voter turnout in the nation? Come learn more about Woman Suffrage in Minnesota, and how our voting rights continue to expand - and be challenged - today. Michelle Witte, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters Minnesota, will share with us some of the unique history related to the "Votes for Women" movement here in our State, how that movement affected women of color, and how the League of Women Voters continues to live out the mission of empowering voters and defending democracy as a nonpartisan, civic engagement organization, with 35 community-based chapters here in MN.

Mindfulness at Work

Presenter: Susan Miles
Susan Miles has been practicing meditation for thirteen years. She served as a Minnesota District Court Judge for twenty-two years, and held positions as Assistant Chief Judge of the Tenth Judicial District, and as past president of Minnesota District Judges Association, Minnesota District Judges Foundation, and Minnesota Women Lawyers. She is qualified by the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness to teach Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. 

A growing body of research evidence has begun to point to the numerous benefits of mindfulness practice. Studies indicate that mindfulness enhances emotional and physical resilience, improves cognitive functioning, and connects us more positively to other people. This session will include an introduction to mindfulness, and will explore the ways in which key mindfulness traits relate to essential workplace skills such as resilience, task execution, critical analysis, intra/interpersonal growth and leadership.
