Women in leadership positions face a unique set of challenges – including perceptions around strength, assertiveness vs. aggressiveness, being heard in meetings, and collaboration. For example, should the only woman in the room be expected to take meeting minutes? Or get coffee for the group? Presenters will share their experience in conquering these and other perceptions, and share tips on how women can be more effective leaders in the workplace and profession.
