Take the Lead: A Transformational Workshop for Women in the Environmental Fields

May 20, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Instead of focusing on the “what’s” and the “should’s,” let’s start by considering what you actually want! Let’s have some fun through exploration, cultivation, reconnection, and rejuvenation – and identify those things you desire most in your life. Join Wendy Millet, Co-Founder of Gallop Ventures, in a half-day workshop that will encourage you to revisit your dreams, rediscover your values, and reclaim your desires.

Connect with a small group of fellow WEN members while working with horses and setting personal and professional goals. Through dream building and intention setting, followed by Equine Assisted Learning activities to reinforce and solidify your wants, you will:

  • Learn something new about yourself
  • Uncover old passions and desires that have long been buried
  • Reconnect with your essential self – which is your truest self
  • Make new connections with other environmental professionals
  • Identify measurable goals that are in alignment with your values and desires

Bring your lunch! We’ll picnic together outside after the workshop.
Additional details and directions to the ranch will be provided after RSVP and ticket purchase.

Executive Director
TomKat Ranch Educational Foundation

TomKat Ranch Educational Foundation serves as a learning laboratory for animal agriculture focused on climate stability, nature’s benefits, healthy food, biodiversity, and vibrant community.

For more than twenty years, Wendy has worked to bridge a love of conservation and working landscapes with practical economic solutions and effective partnerships. In addition to working for several years on cattle and dude ranches in Wyoming and Montana, she ran a local land trust, worked for a timber investment company, developed programs for an environmental economics research foundation, led education and leadership programs for the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, and spent 12 years at The Nature Conservancy working with farmers, ranchers, and timberland owners to protect and restore ranches, rivers and forests.

Wendy’s efforts to share best practices led to work on several publications including Preserving California’s Natural Heritage: A Guide to Land and Water Conservation (California Resources Agency). She also is co-founder of Gallop Ventures which offers equine-guided teamwork and leadership programs to corporations, individuals and organizations.

Wendy holds a B.A. in Literature from Harvard and studied Environmental Economics at the University of Washington and Environmental Planning at University of Virginia.
