Women in the Workforce Panel Webinar

Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 1:00 pm CT

The road to a successful career is different for everyone. You might face challenging obstacles that knock you down, but what really matters is what happens when you rise from the fall. Forty-seven percent of the workforce is female, but of the current Fortune 500 companies, only five percent of CEOs are women. How can this be? These women have used their own professional development to propel them to the positions they currently hold, and by creating their own road to success, are paving the way for future female leaders.

Join a panel of inspiring female leaders as they discuss how they have reached their current positions, what challenges and victories they have encountered, and what they are doing to continually break the glass ceiling.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How women use professional development to excel in their careers
  • Why mentoring and building a strong network is important
  • What advice current female leaders would give to help others build a successful career
  • The importance of increasing diversity in organizational leadership
