“This is an amazing opportunity to gather as a community of women to explore this important topic in a supportive, encouraging environment,” said Kim Kidwell, director for the WSU Center for Transformational Learning and Leadership and associate dean for academic programs for the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences. “We encourage you to bring your daughters, sisters, mothers, relatives and friends to this event with you.”


The symposium facilitator, Krista Petty, is an international life skill enhancement coach and trainer. She has hosted workshops in leadership, personal mastery, individual effectiveness and integral learning.

The full-day workshop will empower participants to live by intentional design, explore how to develop courageous relationships, discover beauty in the world and within them, and share wisdom through actions, Petty said.

She is a former WSU faculty member who co-developed with Kidwell the popular Human Development 205 course, Developing Effective Communications and Life Skills. Participants in the spring symposium selected the topic of this workshop.
