WHAT WORKS: PROMOTING GENDER PARITY IN ORGANIZATIONS

11:45 am - 12:30 pm 

More and more businesses are committed to diversity and inclusion. Leaders now believe it is business imperative, yet it is unclear what works to promote gender parity and greater inclusion of all groups. What are the policies and practices we should advocate for within the organizations we work or implement as leaders?

TRANSITION: MAKING THE MOVE TO LEADING TEAMS 

11:45 am - 12:30 pm 

 

We all want to see women attain more senior roles in companies. A frequent stumbling block for all business leaders is the transition from individual contributor to manager, and from manager to a leader of larger teams. Panelists will share their stories and lessons learned from making those transitions themselves.


How did they have to shift their mindset and how they focused their time? What skills have they found to become  more important as their careers have advanced?

ADVOCATE FOR YOUR OWN CAREER

11:45 am - 12:30 pm 

 

No one can be a better advocate for your career than you. Self-promotion can feel uncomfortable but learning to speak for your accomplishments is essential to career growth.  How can women claim their achievements in the workplace, leverage (rather than just build) relationships, and enlist allies from day one?
