Promoting Yourself Within Your Organization
Speaker: Rebecca Pomering
A leadership challenge many women face is promoting themselves within their own organizations. Everyone wants to build their professional reputation and create opportunities for themselves, but no one wants to be seen as “self-promotional.” This session will cover themes such as: How to get a seat at the table; how to play a role in the next big meeting; how to build rapport with influencers in your organization; how to push/lead yourself to success.
Navigating Conflict and Difficult Conversations
Speaker: Jan Maples
One of the most challenging aspects of leadership for many women is learning how to navigate conflict with grace and poise. In this session, you will identify your own conflict style, its strengths, its drawbacks, and tips for being more successful when faced with conflict situations.
#MeToo and Workplace Equality Panel
This panel will focus on workplace equality and discuss the #MeToo movement. Join us as we conduct a deep dive into how the movement can affect your workplace and ways to ensure fair treatment of all employees as well as best practices.

Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. In this break out session, we'll learn and experiment how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments, perform at our best and empower others to do the same.
