You are your our own greatest asset! Our first panel, “Owning Your Place at the Table: Negotiation Skills for Leadership Success,” will explore what it truly means to step up with power and persistence to ensure that you are negotiating the best outcome for YOU – whether that be in your day-to-day business or outside of office hours. Learning how to put your best foot forward is a non-negotiable skill.
Our second panel, “Breaking Barriers,” features women who are truly paving the way and forging their own formidable paths in industries that have traditionally been considered male-dominated. From transportation services to government contracting to wine-making, these women are innovators and proof that rules are made for breaking and glass ceilings made for shattering.
Our inaugural half-day forum will also feature our keynote speaker Julie Donaldson, Senior Vice President of Media and Content for the Washington Commanders, whose own journey of growth and perseverance embodies both a determination never to undervalue her worth and to be a trailblazer in her current role.
Join us as these inspirational women share educational messages that will motivate and encourage you to continue pushing onward and upward in your own personal and professional journey.
