Panel 1:   Saturday, June 1st, 9.15 - 9:45 am:

Building a Movement for Fun & Profit
In March of 2013, 100 women attended The MERGE! Conference driven by a vision to merge their passion with their profession. We engaged in thought-provoking panel conversations, discussed our desire for redefining our lives and careers and stated the need to contribute to the reshaping of our culture and society.  In our workshops, each woman reflected upon her authentic passion, her natural skills and talents, and the environment she envisions herself to make a contribution to. The MOVE! conference is about taking that deeper passion and purpose and take it into a whole new level. Why is it so important to build a team? Why doing it alone doesn’t work? How do you build a movement for fun and profit? How do you do it sustainably? And why is it so critical for women to participate at this point in time?

As a conscious business Wholefoods is dedicated in making a difference and contribution to all of their stakeholders.  In this particular conversation Kristina Jackson will be sharing Wholefoods’ vision and commitment in leading and educating employees and customers about healthy eating, nutrition tips and wellness.  Why food matters? What’s happening to our kids? Why should we care what we eat? Why is our current food system no longer sustainable?  Why we need to shift our dietary patterns? What are our options that lead to optimal health and well-being?  How to eat healthy on a busy schedule?

Panel 3:   Saturday, June 1st, 3.45 - 4:15 pm:

How to use Community Profiles
User Experience practices are beginning to be adopted  by companies beyond the design, web and software development industries. UX practices are becoming an emerging business practice. It’s a different orientation to addressing client needs.  The approach is centered around the real needs and goals of their clients. Companies are starting to invest in this new business concept because it’s about a human-centered approach. It’s about understanding and engaging with their clients. In this panel we will discuss how to use community profiles. What do you do with the information you gather? How does it drive customer development? How does it impact your project or company? How does it impact your community? Why is it so important to relate to your community profiles? What happens if you ignore your community needs and goals?

Panel 4:    Saturday, June 1st, 4.15 - 4:45 pm:

The Workplace in the 21st Century
The Skool is about educating people how to collaborate, execute and thrive in the digital economy.  In this panel Filter Digital and The Skool will explore what it means to collaborate, execute and thrive  in the 21st Century at the workplace. It seems that with the rise of the digital age, it not only impacts how we do things, but also how we relate to one another. Working in the 21st Century appears to be about creating a new way of engagement, collaboration, training & leadership between employers, employees and amongst co-workers. With that new awareness another inquiry arises, such as what are we collaboratively working for? What’s the vision that unites, ignites and motivates both, the employer and the employees?  How can a new culture at the workplace contribute to the re-shaping what’s old and inefficient and re-define our current rules of engagement?  How can conscious employment not only become a tool  to re-shape and re-define our daily lives and careers, but also contribute to the re-creation of our culture and society? What does it mean to work in the 21st Century? What does it mean to thrive in the digital age? What is the future of work? Can we make a living doing what we love? Who are we working for? What are we working for? Why we work?

- Gavin Burnett, Staffing Team Lead, Filter Digital LLC

Panel 5:    Sunday, June 2nd, 11.15 - 11.45am

Women: Income, Wealth & Money
In this panel we’ll be looking at the tension and difficulties women tend to experience as it relates to making money and establish a livelihood of wealth and prosperity. There seems to be something in the belief and mentality amongst American women and their relationship to money that “doing good” and pursuing wealth & prosperity simultaneously is unethical, selfish, or unspiritual. Some women judge other women for charging for their services, whereas others feel a sense of  guilt, shame or even fear to ask for money for the work or service they offer. In this panel we will explore the different beliefs that may prevent a woman from creating wealth and prosperity, and engage in a conversation why it matters for women to pursue a level of wealth, prosperity and leadership.

Keynote - Conversation 6:   Sunday, June 2nd, 3.45 - 4.30pm

Lynda Weinman: Her journey to success - Co-Founder of Lynda.com
In this conversation we’ll be exploring Lynda’s  vision and journey of building Lynda.com with her husband Bruce Heavin. Lynda.com is an online educational site making more than $100 million in revenue annually from subscriptions from a range of customer groups, including individuals, companies, schools and the U.S. government.  We’ll be engaging in conversations such as how do you divide roles when building a business with your husband?  How did she get started? What was the vision? How to authentically create real value for your community? How to monetize your vision? Should you go for funding, or no funding?  What is the key to building a sustainable business?
