As you progress in your career, your "leadership identity" will grow and evolve. This is true for both men and women. However, integrating leadership into one’s identity can be particularly challenging for women who are often working to establish credibility in organizations where the sense of what “effective leadership” looks like is often male-oriented. Join your colleagues—both women and men—for an open, engaging discussion about leadership as well as embracing the connection between inclusiveness and success. Presenters will discuss ways you can recognize unintended gender-bias, develop your leadership identity, and work collaboratively to encourage one another as aspiring leaders.
