Women in Leadership: Shine Theory

September 17, 2020 @ 18:00 - 19:00 CEST

Free – 200kr

For this Women in Leadership session, join us to hear Chisom Udeze and Sarah Przedpelska discuss Shine Theory.

Shine Theory, developed by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, is described as the practice of mutual investment in each other. Shine Theory represents an intentional commitment to collaborate with and support each other instead of competing with each other.

Rather than engage in insecurity, Shine Theory encourages us to come into our power and have the confidence to be excited and supportive of someone else’s success. It embodies the attitude of “I don’t shine if you don’t shine.” It’s a practice of cultivating a spirit of genuine happiness and excitement when your friends are doing well, and being there for them when they aren’t. When we find ways to elevate each other and help each other thrive, it becomes contagious.

Come to this session to learn about Shine Theory and women supporting women!

About our speakers:

Chisom Udeze
Chisom Udeze, according to Sarah Przedpelska:
“When Chisom Udeze encounters a problem that irks her, you can be certain she does not rest until something moves. She’s done it for over a decade within business development and economics, and more recently, she has been moving things in Oslo to create social impact through Diversify and HerSpace. Chisom is seldom perplexed by problems, instead she sees them as puzzles in need of new constellations. The constellations she forms depend on collaborating with others and lifting together to form synergies and new solutions. No wonder the concept of Shine Theory has such a great appeal to her.”

Sarah Przedpelska

Sarah Przedpelska according to Chisom Udeze:
“Sarah Przedpelska is a curious, brave, warm, and brilliant individual. She approaches every situation with an open mind, and a willingness to truly learn. She sees and values people as they are. In the years I have known Sarah she has been a confidante and a force of nature who I can reach out to when I need unfiltered honesty and advice. She expects me to be better than I am, and she encourages me to aim higher. While I have practiced Shine Theory in one way or another throughout my adult life, it was with Sarah that we first decided to make it intentional. She introduced me to the concept of Shine Theory and I look forward to continuing learning from her.”
