Wed, July 11: Books for Breakfast – So You Want to Talk About Race

AWC-SB’s popular summer reading program returns on Wednesday, July 11 at Moby Dick Restaurant on Stearns Wharf. For July Women of Achievement honoree, Dr. Carrie Hutchinson, will lead a discussion about So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo.

Wednesday, July 11, 7:30-9 am
Moby Dick Restaurant

Santa Barbara, CA 93101

In So You Want to Talk About Race, Editor at Large of The Establishment Ijeoma Oluo offers a contemporary, accessible take on the racial landscape in America, addressing head-on such issues as privilege, police brutality, intersectionality, micro-aggressions, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the "N" word. Perfectly positioned to bridge the gap between people of color and white Americans struggling with race complexities, Oluo answers the questions readers don't dare ask, and explains the concepts that continue to elude everyday Americans.

Oluo is an exceptional writer with a rare ability to be straightforward, funny, and effective in her coverage of sensitive, hyper-charged issues in America. Her messages are passionate but finely tuned and crystalize ideas that would otherwise be vague by empowering them with aha-moment clarity.

Wed, Aug 8: Books for Breakfast – How Women Rise

. AWC-SB’s popular summer reading program continues on Wednesday, August 8 at Moby Dick Restaurant on Stearns Wharf. This month we plan to discuss How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job by Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith.

Wednesday, August 8, 7:30-9 am
Moby Dick Restaurant
220 Stearns Wharf
Santa Barbara, CA 93101

Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers--men and women--to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won't get you there . . . and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late.

Sally and Marshall identify the 12 habits that hold women back as they seek to advance, showing them why what worked for them in the past might actually be sabotaging their future success. Building on Marshall's classic best seller What Got You Here Won't Get You There, their new book How Women Rise is essential reading for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.
