In celebration of Women’s Herstory Month, the American Family Insurance DreamBank is honored to amplify the story of a woman who embodies the power of dreaming big and leading with intention; Lila Grant, the second female drum major in history to lead the Morehouse College “House of Funk” Marching Band.
Based on Lila’s dream pursuit and expertise, American Family Insurance brought her in as a consultant while filming the newest commercial “Marching Band" where she ensured that choreography and wardrobe were culturally accurate representations of the pride and pageantry of historically Black collegiate marching bands. In this conversation moderated by Sherina Smith, Chief Marketing Officer of American Family Insurance, these two fearless leaders will discuss the importance of representation and leadership, drawing on this experience and their unique dream pursuits. They’ll share what it means to be a trailblazer — offering advice on overcoming obstacles, living with purpose and paving the way for other women to succeed.
Tuesdays, April 25-May 23, Noon-1 pm CT
The longest and most important relationship in your life is with yourself – but like so many, you may be conditioned to think that taking time for your well-being is an act of luxury. The more you feed into that belief, the more likely you'll face burnout and lower self-esteem, potentially putting your overall health at risk. Join mental health therapist, Kyira Wackett, for a five-session course designed to help you understand the importance of self-love. Together, we'll break down what self-care looks and feels like, exploring how to create a foundation to deepen your love for yourself today and tomorrow. It’s time we made self-care non-negotiable. Register now to reserve your spot.
