Credible, actionable advice on leading with integrity

Through the years, women have made substantial progress when it comes to workplace equality; however, we still have a long way to go. Studies affirm women are now earning more college degrees and are climbing the corporate ladder in record numbers. Despite these statistics, the gender wage gap remains, and only a small number of women are employed in executive levels across various industries. Why the disparity? Gender stereotypes, which are partly to blame, are slow to change. Although some leadership books have encouraged women to “act like a man,” that faulty logic and behavior won’t help women lead with respect and authenticity. Where can women get credible advice on how to genuinely lead without compromising their integrity? In this session, the four challenges women experience when advancing their careers will be discussed, as well as strategies for women to implement to get beyond these four challenges. Participants will also leave with knowledge of how their organizations can support and promote high potential women into higher level leadership roles.

  2. Participants will identify and describe strategies for women to employ to successfully advance their careers
