Bold Careers: Women Executives Discuss Their Authentic Journey

Need some inspiration to take the next steps in your career journey, to launch your career with your whole self and not just your resume? Not quite sure what to truly look for in a company beyond surface level basics? Are you considering switching your career focus?

This diverse panel of women executives will be discussing their real-life career journeys, not just repeating theories out of a book. You can expect to hear the panelists’ perspectives from their not-so-typical career paths, how they worked within male-dominated fields, and how they carved a place for themselves. Leave encouraged with tangible steps to do the same in your own career.
