The Value of Disrupting Leadership Culture
It's easy to fall in line and follow suit when it comes to leading, managing or owning a business. We see others who have gone before us and assume their path is the safe and proven passage. But what if our truest path to groundbreaking success lies in who we already are? What if our perceived weaknesses are actually what will set us apart and propel our industry forward? What if the experts in our field are not actually the gatekeepers? Join us as we explore the advantage of purposefully disrupting traditional leadership culture and celebrating the opportunity to own who we are.

Lifting up the next generation women

Why must women help other women succeed? What responsibility do we each have in making a difference for those who follow us? How can women leaders provide organizational and personal support?
