From the organizers: Whether you’re dreaming of the day to come, or you finally have gotten there – you are THE boss. Now what? There is little preparation for the reality of being the coveted “boss.” Learn from the best in the business: a panel of extraordinary women bosses will share their experiences and lessons learned on topics such as risk-taking, negotiation, asking for help, self-confidence and building relationships.
- In this session, you’ll draw inspiration from a group of highly motivated professional women within diverse roles and across the generations, who will tell their own personal stories about taking risks, overcoming challenges and sticking with their goals until success was assured.
