Leatherwomen's Leadership Intensive

  • Cleveland Play Space (map)

We will be hosting the amazing @ToniSolenne for a very special intensive on June 17!

Join us Saturday from 12pm-5pm at the space for


Whether working in an organization, running a business, or guiding a family, leadership involves deciding what matters most. Today, the old “command and control” leadership model is giving way to “connect and collaborate,” and women are playing a central role in this important shift.

This intensive is for leather women who want to use their leadership to create a caring future for everybody. Through reflection, dialogue, writing, and meditation, we delve into our leadership stories, learn from each other, and create a shared understanding of what is needed to bring greater consciousness in our leather communities.

Together we (1) articulate our core values and the values that underlie creating a culture of care, (2) strengthen our capacity to communicate in an impactful manner, (3) create a compelling and actionable vision for our leadership goals, (4) map the key contours of a year’s plan to put our values into action, (5) elevate our leadership voice, and (6) advance our vision for change.

Whether you are a seasoned leader or beginning your leadership journey, this intensive can help you be the courageous, wise, and nurturing leader our communities need today.

---- Note: for the Leatherwomen's portion, we define "women" as anyone who identifies as a woman. Nonbinary friends are welcome to join, as well. However, if you identify as a man/male, please join us for the evening class ----
