Are you wondering about the 2024 Women in Banking event?  Do you miss your other WIB friends and colleagues?  Are you ready to cut out early and join us for our second Women in Banking POWER HOUR?  Join us virtually  at 3:30 CDT/2:30 MDT on 5/29 for a Lead Strong: Women in Banking POWER HOUR (and a half). 

Because we are GRATEFUL for all of you.  Because we are GRATEFUL for our awesome industry.  Because we are GRATEFUL to be done with work an hour and a half early on 5/29, we are offering this FREE, hour-and-a-half session.  For these 90 minutes, we’ll be “Banking on GRATITUDE”. 



  • Melissa Hiatt, MA, CDWF, CDTLF, Strengths Communicator will present Unleashing the Superpower of Gratitude.  There’s a difference between toxic positivity and the practice of gratitude.  Gratitude does not deny the pain, the hardship, or the struggle, but stands in the midst of it.  Gratitude keeps fear from growing and keeps our feet rooted to what is true today.  As a result of this session, participants will be able to: define vulnerability as risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure; identify the three most common methods used to protect oneself from vulnerability (perfectionism, numbing, foreboding joy); learn to counter perfectionism with self-compassion, numbing with mindfulness, and foreboding joy with gratitude.
  • GRATITUDE is associated with a myriad of benefits, both mental and physical.  Feeling thankful can improve sleep, mood and boost your immune system.  It can also decrease depression, anxiety, and chronic pain symptoms.  Ummmm… YES PLEASE!  Engage with colleagues in exploring and expressing gratitude.  Just imagine how well you’ll sleep tonight!
  • We would like to RECOGNIZE our amazing workgroup who have been involved in planning this September’s event.  Wondering what’s on tap for WIB this year?  We’ll tell you!  We think you’re going to like what’s coming.
  • We are THANKFUL to have this opportunity to network with our friends and colleagues.  Say hello to old friends and meet someone new.
