This October, the Omega Women’s Leadership Centerheld its biennial Women & Power Retreat, focused on helping women #DoPowerDifferently. This year’s retreat brought together a diverse group of change leaders to explore themes such as turning pain into power, cultivating personal resilience, taking action in the face of adversity, and advocating for equality, justice, and healing.
Interested in what findings and insights emerged from this year’s retreat, I caught up with Carla Goldstein, who serves as Omega Institute’s chief external affairs officer connecting Omega to change-making efforts around the world. A pioneer in women’s leadership with 25 years of public policy experience, Carla is also co-founder of the Omega Women’s Leadership Center, a hub for convening, inspiring, and training women to “do power differently.”
The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies receives more than 500 teachers and 23,000 people annually to attend its workshops, conferences, and retreats in Rhinebeck, New York.
