In collaboration with Scottsdale's Human Relations Commission, Scottsdale Public Library

Consider the significance of your personal narrative. What story do you share about yourself? Equally important, what stories do others tell about you? And perhaps most crucially, what story do you aspire for them to tell about you?

Throughout history, storytelling has been our conduit for learning and communication. It’s a powerful tool—one that shapes our personal, professional, and cultural narratives. For women, whose stories have often been marginalized or erased, defining our own narratives becomes an act of empowerment.

A good storyteller weaves a compelling tale, but a great storyteller invites you to find yourself within that narrative. In this exploration, participants will gain valuable insights and practical tips for mastering the art of storytelling.
