@Faith Wilson-Grove glad I'm not the only one :) I have also taken big leaps in the past. I think it was likely a buildup up of waiting and overanalyzing that catapulted my decisions. And those have been some of the best decisions I have made in my life.

Well said, Cathy! I am attending via my laptop in my car in the Healdsburg Plaza, after dropping my son at school.
Erin Rasmussen
01:36:01
@Faith I don't live there anymore, but you just made me homesick for Healdsburg :)
Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)
01:36:12
Anyone please feel free to reach out and I can share resources and information. In California maybe a socially distanced chat too on IG: @hawk_wakawaka
Beth Feather
01:36:22
More inclusive panels and events like this!!!
Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)

Thank you @Erin @Elaine @Evelyne!
Faith Wilson-Grove

Erin, Healdsburg has grown tremendously (in good and bad ways, you understand) over the past especially 10 years
Etinosa Emokpae
01:36:50
Very true! More interaction!
Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)
01:36:52
Remember: We can all start our own groups and organizations too
Wendy Narby
01:36:54
@nathassia, I think women for wine sense is in Texas too
Sarah Jane Evans MW

In Germany there’s a women in wine organization called Vinissima - they just celebrated their 10 year anniversary
Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)
01:38:09
SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE. BUILD COMMUNITY. AMEN, Pascaline!
Etinosa Emokpae
01:38:10
It should be about helping each other and community building
Erin Rasmussen
01:38:13
@Elaine - yes! Hearing what everyone is doing to connect gives me a jolt of inspiration to start something :)
Nic Winz
01:38:16
Beautifully said, Pascaline
Kimberly Whorton
01:38:18

Pauline Vicard
01:38:18
Rethinking what success look like. Key. thanks for pointing this @pascaline

Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)
01:38:37
Every day, Every person. Amen
Mary Louise Cummings
01:38:40
So well said, Pascaline - 'we can be successful by nurturing'. Thank you!
Jaime Dutton
01:38:41
Caring and nurturing are huge components to success, thank you @Pascaline. well said
Katie Canfield

01:38:51
If you have a question you would like any of today’s speakers/panelists to answer, please use the Q&A box (Q&R en français) to submit a question! Don’t forget to specify the speaker(s) you would like to address, and tell us a little bit about yourself!
Faith Wilson-Grove
01:38:53
Yes, Pascaline
Maegan Ballantyne-Ridgway
01:39:16
Pascaline, I sooo appreciate your perspective and questions regarding the CMS and the identity/role of the established sommelier community. Here in Canada, we’re so lucky to have a (small) collective of MS’s who are excellent examples and mentors, and who are embracing a shift toward more equity and inclusion for women and ALL minority communities.
Sarah Covey
01:39:39
Ooo Caroline- can you please send your website? :)
Monique Benoit
01:40:16
Good to know!!
Erin Rasmussen
01:40:27
Yes!
Kristina Tatarinova
01:41:12
thank you so much for addressing the impostor syndrome issue. This “who am I to be in wine” is a frequent blocking thought
Caroline Conner
01:41:25
Thanks Elaine, that’s great advice, I did write down « listen to understand » on a post it and stuck it on my desk during your keynote!
Alyssa Johnson
01:41:39
Wow! So good Elaine!
Faith Wilson-Grove
01:41:42
Yes, Elaine! Powerful tip!
Caroline Conner

We are good at what we do!! Keep going!! Thank you Tanisha!
Faith Wilson-Grove
01:43:52
This is exactly why we need this kind of event!
Beth Feather
01:44:08
Don’t ignore the day to day little things. I like to write them down so I can feel and see how I am productive and moving the needle, especially when it feels I am not or feels the steps are so small. They are meaningful!
MaryBeth Kemp
01:44:32
As someone once said to me - if you’re not nervous, you’re dead. It’s harder to do things than not.
Pauline Vicard
01:44:50
oh wow
Erin Rasmussen
01:44:59
YES! I've heard that voice :)
Sarah Covey
01:45:00
ASTOUNDING, Cathy. You are a Legend! :)
Ariane Benichou
01:45:02
1:30 is not enough!! :)))
Caroline Conner

Aimée Lasseigne New
01:45:15
"Watch me." Yes!
Etinosa Emokpae

Rightly said Beth :-) I bet that when you read that list later on, you are impressed :-)
Alice Archer
01:46:02
This is all so brilliant and inspiring
Claudia Schug
01:46:04
I’d love to be part of an international women in wine organization . I know so many amazing women in the industry all over the world
Caroline Conner
01:46:12
Which organization are you in Claudia?
Mary Louise Cummings
01:46:13
Yes, in our discomfort and fear we GO anyway!
MaryBeth Kemp
01:47:04
Adaptability and courage
Ashley Donahey
01:47:30
I have a quote scrawled on my whiteboard that keeps me going on the hard days : “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage too continue that counts.”
Laetitia Rey
01:47:31
Drinking Pascaline’s words as usual
Faith Wilson-Grove
01:47:37
Beautiful, Pascaline. Useful imagery
Alice Archer
01:47:38
Pascaline speaks so elegantly and evocatively
Nic Winz
01:47:54
That’s a good quote, Ashley
Sarah Covey
01:48:06
YES- this question!
Claudia Schug
01:48:11
@caroline Conner - here in California mainly regional marketing organizations - svvga, Sonoma county, California wine institute.In Germany I was part of the sommelier association

Elaine Thap
01:48:51
omg Cathy, that’s how i feel all the time
Linda Violago
01:49:01
there will always be people that ignore and dismiss us and we need to stay our path
Nathassia Corzo
01:49:13
As a chemical engineer, and also part of my personality, I am often driven by "how". Interestingly, fear and self-doubt usually pray on me not having or not knowing the "how". What I'm hearing is to focus more on my "why".
Erin Rasmussen
01:49:33
yes!
Sarah Covey
01:49:56
YES Elaine and Cathy!
Anne de Bérard
01:49:59
Yep!!! Elaine!
Monique Benoit

Cynthia Coutu
01:54:49
Every time Pascaline begins to answer a question, she reminds me of the Rodin sculpture The Thinker
Brenna Quigley
01:55:14
Such an incredible and positive group of women—thank you for sharing your insights and experiences
Elaine Thap
01:55:31

Building a network = community building = listeningThese perspective ships are so important. Thank you Elaine.
Etinosa Emokpae
01:59:36
We also need to be talking to each other about what we make! Transparency is the only way to break these wage gaps
Aimée Lasseigne New
01:59:52
Merci beaucoup!
Caroline Conner
02:00:19
I have started charging unreasonable prices and people are paying them so now they seem pretty ok! lol
Julia Coney
02:00:21
The rate is the rate.
Elaine Thap
02:00:29
100% Etinosa
Sarah Covey
02:00:30

Brianne Day
02:01:32
If any of my distributors are reading - the prices are going up! :)
Nathassia Corzo
02:01:46
It would be helpful if we share with each other how we're getting compensated. I know this sounds scary because it's a shift away from competition to community building, like Elaine shared during her keynote speech.
Kayt Mathers
02:02:00
YES!
Tonya Pitts
02:02:01
Excellent advice Tanisha!!

Nic Winz
02:02:05
Agreed Nathassia
Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)
02:02:12
Yes! We need to have these conversations about money and pay with each other. By charging what we are worth we are also ensuring others will be paid what they are worth
Caroline Conner
02:02:14
I also heard this in the coaching space - somebody has to be the most expensive!
Kathryn Snipes
02:02:21
I love that!
Elaine Chukan Brown (she/her)
02:02:28
Choose where you can donate your time unpaid
Kathryn Snipes
02:02:38
