The mission of The Dali includes providing unique inspiration for programs and serving as an active community resource. As part of fulfilling that mission, we offer workshops, such as the Women’s Empowerment Program, which are funded by civic-minded sponsors who believe in supporting educational, economic and creative development in our local community. We we create custom workshop content, utilizing the resources of the Museum’s Innovation Labs.
What is it?
The Women’s Empowerment Program is a series of workshops specifically designed to work with nonprofit organizations serving women. The sessions are customized for each nonprofit and its clients, staff and/or board members.
How does it work?
Our facilitators work with organization leaders to determine appropriate custom content for each Program, establishing scope, flow and deliverables that can enhance creative thinking and problem solving, and ideas for how to apply these skills to individual challenges. We draw insight from the most prominent and research-validated, creative thinking methods from around the world and apply a set of highly specialized, proprietary, Dali-inspired techniques to topics.
Programs can be designed and conducted for clients, staff members and board members, benefiting the organization’s total scope, from its constituents to its front-line service providers to its governing body.

“I attended the Dali Innovation Lab with a group of ladies from Dress for Success Professional Women’s Group. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the icebreaker helped to put my mind at ease… There were all kinds of inspirations and positive energy flowing from the team — I realized we were in for a treat. We made a vision board about our dreams and aspirations which helped us to think outside of the box, and think big, allowing our imagination and creativity to really run wild. It was all based on perception — breaking away from the mundane and creating magic in the mind. The highlight and finale was to tour the Museum and select some of our favorite pieces, study the paintings and see if we were able to move past the obvious and find hidden messages, faces, even mind twisters, for after all, it’s all ART: The power of perception.” -NB
