In celebration of Women's History Month

Jill Tietjen, co-author of the bestselling and award-winning book "Her Story: A Timeline of the Women Who Changed America" will lead the audience through exercises and a highly visual PowerPoint presentation that focus on women throughout U.S. history and how we are influenced by their legacy. This interactive workshop enables the audience to focus on:

  • Their family tree, particularly the matriarchal lines
  • A timeline of their family history
  • Women in U.S. history and how their legacy impacts our lives today
  • Leadership styles for women of the 21st century
  • How the leadership style of each audience member influences her legacy

Registration for the workshop opens February 1 by calling the Curator of Education at 970-577-3762. The class is $10, payable in cash or check. Participants should bring either a notepad or laptop, whichever they are most comfortable using to write notes. The program will take place at the Estes Park Museum, located at 200 Fourth Street in Estes Park.
