Women have just as much opportunity for career triumph in STEM as men, and yet there is evidence that we are not paid as much as men, nor are there as many women in management and leadership roles in many industries. Why is this? We will explore how women can ensure their own success and enable their team members to thrive. We will also delve into some tricky issues, especially how women may sabotage their own success via verbal and non-verbal actions and non-actions, such as not negotiating. You will emerge from this webinar inspired with new tools to not only break the glass ceiling, but smash it to bits. Let’s move our careers forward! Are you with me? Note: Both women and men will find this webinar helpful and motivational in thinking about their own career advancement strategies and those of their colleagues.
