Women with Vision: A celebration of leadership

August 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the extremely hard-fought, 72-year Suffrage Movement that culminated with the ratification of the 19th Amendment, earning many women the right to vote.

It inspired ZingTrain, a woman-owned business, to create this special one-day virtual event to commemorate, honor, and learn from this momentous milestone, bringing you powerful stories of leadership, vision, and passion from some of the most inspiring women we know.

The Details

Celebrate Inspiring Women!


August 20th, 2020
9:30AM - 4:30PM EDT

Join us on August 20th to learn about the sacrifice, grit, determination, and vision of the women that came before us to gain a better understanding of what they faced at different points of our nation’s history, and how their journey continues to shape our current landscape around women’s rights. 


You’ll learn tools for being a strong servant leader while staying true to yourself and your values, you’ll be inspired by the stories of women who stood tall, made their voices heard, and are leading in male-dominated fields, and you’ll have the chance to connect with other like-minded leaders who are eager to continue to grow, learn, and lead others.

Importantly, you’ll also have the chance to begin writing your own vision of greatness, creating a picture of success that will inspire you and those around you.  We'll even send you a ZingTrain journal and some delicious Zingerman's treats to snack on while you learn!


Register by August 7th to get your box of treats in time for the event!


There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.”

Amy Emberling


Servant Leadership: A Leadership Style Committed to Social Justice

Amy will kick off the day by sharing a brief introduction to Servant Leadership, the leadership model we practice and share how this approach implicitly supports social justice. She will show us how through its daily use leaders develop greater empathy and appreciation for the challenges our co-workers experience because of their personal life experiences and how Servant Leadership can free organizations from our limiting cultural restrictions.

Elaine Weiss


The Woman’s Hour : Leadership through Generations

The history of leadership through the suffrage movement - a fight lasting 72 years - required female leaders to rise up through the ranks themselves and to nurture subsequent generations to help win the fight. Elaine Weiss shares the story of these leaders, who embodied the dedication, perseverance, and vision necessary to see the 19th Amendment ratified, giving women in the US the legal right to lift themselves up as equals to their male counterparts.

Dr. Candice Lee


Leading From Where You Are

A trailblazer serving as both the first female Athletic Director at Vanderbilt University and the first African American woman to head a Southeastern Conference athletics program, Candice Lee more than earned her role with a proven ability to fill the “big shoes” of her predecessor and mentor. “Be ready, be nimble, expect the unexpected” is a mantra Candice teaches her student-athletes - a mantra she has repeated to herself during her nearly 25 years at Vanderbilt as she helped facilitate a critical shift to a winning mentality: as a student-athlete, as Captain of the Women’s Basketball team, and now in her history-making role as AD. Candice will share the leadership lessons she learned as she has persevered in a male-dominated field with determination and good humor.

Toni Tipton-Martin


Lifting Voices of the Past

Toni Tipton-Martin's James Beard Award-Winning book, The Jemima Code, opened a conversation in the food world about the role of black cooks in American kitchens. Her second book, Jubilee, expands on the deep diversity of African-American cuisine in a moment when the issue of African-American cultural ownership is particularly relevant. Toni will share her story of growth and leadership - how she rose to prominence as a food writer and ultimately editor, becoming a voice not only for her generation of Black women but raising her voice for the women who came before her.
