Be Heard

Are modesty and humility incompatible with selling yourself and being vocal?  This panel aims to answer that question, with women sharing stories and advice on how to find your authentic voice and wield it.  Get inspiration on how to advocate for yourself in the workplace and beyond.



Set-back.  Stumble.  Failure.  These words are terrifying to many, but fear of failure shouldn’t stand in the way of pursuing your goals.  Join this panel to hear from women that have silenced that voice of doubt and successfully overcome challenges in the workplace.


Seek Diverse Guidance

Female mentors are a wonderful resource but unfortunately there aren’t always enough to go around.  This panel will feature individuals who have served as mentors to successful women.  The panelists will share their perspectives on mentoring and coaching women in the workplace and share advice on establishing valuable relationships.  



It is increasingly less common for professionals to climb one uninterrupted career ladder, with many pivoting to new jobs, industries, or work styles and environments at some point in their life.  In this panel, hear from women who have successfully pursued a change and reinvented themselves.
