Women. Working. Together.

The Women’s Council of Central Ohio, or WCCO, emerged to capitalize on the natural strengths of women, and their organizations, to collaborate.

Our mission is to leverage the power of women, fostering awareness and understanding and sharing our resources and events, among the myriad women’s groups that are already established in Central Ohio.

WCCO is not just another women’s group.

It is women working together.

Monthly Meetings

Representatives from each member group meet monthly to personally connect and share strategy.  They develop strong cross-organizational relationships and collaboration, empowering each organization to achieve focus and strength.

Special Interest Groups

One of the goals of WCCO is to make each member organization stronger.  Our SIGs are small ad hoc or ongoing groups that meet regularly to explore and develop specific topics like trending issues, leadership development, or legislative advocacy.

Executive Advisory Panel

WCCO is guided by our Executive Advisory Panel comprised of a cross section of our member organizations.  This panel is dedicated to developing strategies for women to come together and make a difference in our world through our member organizations.

Growing Into Ourselves - A Day of Learning

September 20, 2014, 9:00am - September 20, 2014, 2:30pm

Harrison College - Columbus, Ohio Campus

Growing Into Ourselves, a Day of Learning September 20 Program 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Harrison College, Grove City, Ohio Please note change in location! On September 20, 2014 our chapter will offer a workshop event, "Growing Into Ourselves". The event will be held from 9:00-3:30 p.m. at Harrison College in Grove City. This special day of workshops will be structured to give a choice of three workshop options in the morning and afternoon. We will all convene for a box lunch provided by Freedom a la Cart, a social enterprise benefiting victims of human trafficking. The Threshold Choir will provide a demonstration during lunch. Morning sessions include: Find Your Passion: A User's Guide to Sharing Your Gift with the World Through fun and thought-provoking games and hands-on activities, you'll dig deep and find your long forgotten passions, then apply those insights to "what's next?" in your life. You'll leave with tools for continuing your personal 'passion-mining'. Instructor: Peggy Shafer Introduction to Self-Care: Your Body's Owner's Manual When you know how something works, it is much easier to take care of it. This workshop will de-mystify how your nervous system responds when under stress, and its long term effects. We will discuss and practice techniques for relaxation, and how to give yourself permission to spend more time on self-care. Instructor: Carol Oswald Mandala Doodles. Access the Law of Divine Creativity The Mandala is a magical art form that integrates your left and right brain. While creating a mandala you are super charging your brain by incorporating Sacred Geometry and Creativity. You'll learn to love this simple yet powerful way of relaxing and doodling. There is NO ARTISTIC experience required, just a willingness to learn and allow your soul to speak creatively. Instructor: Kathy Rausch Afternoon sessions include: Introductory Self-Defense This introductory workshop provides participants a no nonsense approach to self-defense. Participants will have 5 very basic techniques demonstrated and will be given the opportunity to do each technique. This interactive workshop will conclude with a question and answer session. Instructor: Susan Marks Take the Fear Out of Public Speaking We are always seeking new ways to keep our minds sharp, and through Toastmasters, we have the opportunity to do just that. What is Toastmasters all about? In this lively 2-hour interactive session, you will learn that public speaking can actually be fun. Instructor: Mary Hiland Uncover Your Money Story Can you imagine what it would feel like to have enough money to fulfill your dreams? Do you sometimes wonder what is holding you back? Uncover your "money story" and change your attitude about money from fear and scarcity to confidence and abundance. This knowledge will empower you to make wise financial decisions and raise your comfort level of spending, even in retirement. After this interactive session you will have a better understanding of: knowing when you have enough to stop or reduce your work hours, an overview of Social Security claiming strategies, and the psychology of paying yourself from savings. Instructor: Mary C. Slane This event is an amazing value at $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Patsy is coordinating the event and needs volunteers to help with marketing. This doesn't require a lot of time and we may able to do some of the planning via conference call or email. Please contact her at lifelonglearner53@gmail.com or 614-562-6317 if you can help even in a small role. This is an exciting new venture for us that we hope will become an annual event for Central Ohio Women over 50! To register for this meeting go to The Transition Network | Events .
