    Is Your Risk Taking Helping You Flourish?

    Join Diana Coleman, lecturer and writer, for a provocative presentation and interactive discussion about women’s beneficial risks. Fascinated by how one defines a risk and interested in women’s risk-taking stories, Diana interviewed a variety of women around the US and internationally, about overcoming challenges and taking risks. Her future book portrays stories of women who are achieving their passions by taking diverse, new risks at age 50+, their second half of life—from roller derby skating at 70—to adopting two children as a single mom—to donating a kidney to a stranger. Diana will share some stories and inspire attendees of all ages to think about how they define risk, risks taken, and future ambitions


    A risk-taking woman in her 60s with over thirty-five years of public speaking, marketing, nonprofit organization administration and fundraising experience, Diana formerly raised $200+ million with teams globally for education, health, international aid and the environment, with nonprofit organizations, including Save the Children and the University of California, Berkeley. Diana’s work has taken her to Ethiopia, Egypt, Jordan, the Philippines, Indonesia and Guatemala. She is currently involved with educating girls and women’s microenterprise programs in Kenya—portrayed in her story Glimpses of Kenya from a Mzungu Woman in the 2015 Goose River Anthology. A former career counselor at American University, Washington, DC, Diana also taught “Nonprofit Management” at JFK University, California. She received an undergraduate degree from Russell Sage College, Troy, New York and a master’s degree from American University. Originally from Massachusetts, she lived thirty years in San Francisco and now lives in Rockland, Maine.

                    Joan Welsh will join us for a discussion of the importance of women’s involvement in state and local issues; the differences we can make; and how and where to get information.


    Joan moved to Maine from Colorado where she was deeply involved in women’s issues, especially stopping domestic violence where she was a founder and  Executive Director of a shelter for abused women and children.  At that time she also was the chair of the Colorado Domestic Violence Coalition and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.  She served as the Deputy Director of Colorado Outward Bound before being hired as the President/CEO of Hurricane Island Outward Bound (1991- 2000).  She then served as Deputy Director of the Natural Resources Council of Maine.  During all this time she was active politically dealing with domestic violence legislation and environmental policy.  She was elected to the Maine House of Representatives in 2008 where she also was House Chair of the Environment and Natural Resources committee for 4 years.  She retired from the legislature in December due to term limits.
