CHICAGO, IL - January 23, 2014 - Daniella Levitt Enterprises LLC, represented by Agent Alan Morell of Creative Management Partners, is pleased to announce that seven Chicagoland organizations participated last week in the launch of a new program aimed at increasing the pace of change at which they are advancing women forward and upward in the workplace.
About gen-xyb™ High Tea:
gen-xyb™ High Tea is an eleven-month long corporate program designed by Daniella Levitt Enterprises, LLC which embodies the philosophy of using cross-generational collaboration, and women and organization's leadership teams taking more calculated risks within their overall leadership development strategy as key mechanisms to empower transformation and advance women into executive ranks. Healthcare, Financial Services and Law firms are amongst the industries represented with participants in the program.
Said Daniella Levitt, "We have to challenge ourselves to change ourselves, and we have to challenge the current thinking and norms of how we are tackling advancement of women in our organizations to get to better results. This cross-generational opportunity is indeed a key to accelerating towards better outcomes for women."
Participants at the kickoff echoed those sentiments. A program participant from a Law firm had the following to say about the kickoff: "I am really looking forward to hearing the themes from other industries. Sometimes when you are in the legal community you tend to live in a vacuum so I am really interested to hear if there is consistency in themes or if there are different ideas that pop up. It's nice to see a program that is geared towards women from across generations to learn from who has come before us, and also for the younger generations to impart what they have been able to experience to the older generations. I am really interested in seeing how the people dynamic plays out." She added: "I think this is really exciting for us to be involved in Daniella's vision as a whole for the program. It is invigorating to be surrounded by so many high-caliber sophisticated women in the room and to hear the complexity and diversity of opinions. A learning experience from top to bottom and I really look forward to what's next in store for us...and seeing what the corollaries are and how we can all work together to build this into something spectacular."
After the evening's activities wrapped up, a program participant from a major Health Insurance organization said: "I am very motivated and excited about what I am going to get out of the rest of the program. I like the sharing of ideas, that there is a good cross-section of people from different generations, different ethnicities, different areas of business, different industries, and different places in their careers. We've got a good group. I am really excited. I think it's going to be a lot of fun. For me it's thinking about opportunities of trying to get people to think differently, to reach for innovation and change. I can take that into my organization and potentially trail blaze for change."
A participant from a company in the Financial Services industry had the following to say: "I thought tonight was full of incredible energy. You couldn't have picked a room full of more vibrant, enthusiastic, authentic women. It's always interesting to watch the progression from contemplative to good outburst. It's going to be an incredible program...Daniella is very passionate about this. That's the key driving force in anything to be successful. It's very transparent she cares a lot about the program, believes in it. It's hers, she is authoring it. But it is also very transparent that she cares a lot about the individuals participating and that they get a lot out of it, and that if they don't know what they want she will help them find that."
"Daniella Levitt is fast becoming the "go to" expert in this space within the publishing and broadcast sector", said her agent Alan Morell of Creative Management Partners who represents Ms. Levitt for her career initiatives.
