When I Have Gumption
Omega Women & Power Retreat
September 16th, 2015
Carla Goldstein, Jamia Wilson, Elizabeth Lesser
Several days before the 2015 Omega Women & Power Retreat, Carla Goldstein found my performance poem, "When I Have Gumption" on Youtube. Feeling that it would be just the thing to inspire and add some artisitc presence to the final day of speeches at the conference, she got the approval and invited me up to Rhinebeck, New York to perform. The next thing I knew I was sitting at a fancy dinner table with Elizabeth Gilbert, being invited into a world all about #doingpowerdifferently, which is a call for women to change the leadership model from power-over others to power-with. I am so glad that this video of the performance was captured. It was one of the best days of my life.
Some audience responses...
I was also invited to perform "When I Have Gumption" at the Feminist.com 20th Anniversary Conference in 2015.
If you would like to invite me to come perform "When I Have Gumption" at your conference, program, or other event, please contact me!
