MARCH PROGRAM - Natalie Erdman

The Changing Face of Madison


Join us on Tuesday, March 13 to hear Natalie Erdman, Planning & Community & Economic Development Director for the City of Madison, present The Changing Face of Madison

Please plan to meet at The Edgewater at 11:30 for networking; lunch will be served at 11:55 a.m.  

We can see some of the physical changes in Madison just by driving down East Washington or around Hilldale.  Playing a big part in these changes is the increasing influence of millennials and high tech, bio tech and IT companies.  Epic is the company we tend to think about in this context…and it is a big driver, but it’s not just Epic.  What do these influences mean to how we grow as a city and what are the impacts on housing affordability and transportation systems?  The City of Madison works to anticipate the needs of a growing city and respond to changing expectations.

Natalie Erdman is Director of the Department of Planning and Community and Economic Development for the City of Madison.  Prior to her appointment as the Director of PCED, Natalie served as the Executive Director of City’s Community Development Authority (CDA).  

She comes with background in real estate finance and development including a degree in Real Estate Finance and Land Economics from the University of Wisconsin and 15 years experience in real estate development with a specialization in infill development and affordable housing.  She spent the first 10 years of her career as a commercial real estate lender at US Bank and Citigroup.

She’s lived and worked in Madison for more than 20 years and is enjoying working with very capable staff to strengthen neighborhoods, create economic opportunities for Madison’s residents, and thoughtfully address the challenges that arise as our community grows and changes.”

SESSION TWO
February 28
Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 7:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
Owning Our Stories: A Pathway to Authentic Leadership
Chief Kristen Roman, UW Madison Police

Author Brene Brown says, “To be alive is to be vulnerable; to be a leader is to be vulnerable every minute of the day. You don’t get to opt out.” Authentic leadership requires courage, emphasizes self-awareness and promotes legitimacy through relational transparency and fair-mindedness. In this session, participants will explore the process of cultivating authentic leadership and learn the importance of owning our stories. Understanding that balance is vital to career endurance and mistakes are an essential ingredient of success, authentic leadership asks us that we let ourselves be seen and sit with discomfort. In so doing, our vulnerabilities have the power to lead us to our greatest strengths.  SESSION 2 - 2017-18 Executive Leadership Registration

Mindfulness: It’s More Than Meditation
Julia Yates, UW Health
Learn to use mindful awareness to examine stress reactions and resiliency tools from a place of non-judgmental curiosity. Discussion will start with defining mindfulness and exploring the powerful role of vulnerability when using mindfulness to increase self-awareness. Openly and honestly explore triggers and reactions to stress , while identifying what works to bring us back to a state of wellness and resiliency. We all react to stress, and we all need personal resiliency strategies that work for us.  SESSION 3 - 2017-18 Executive Leadership Registration
