Building a Better Network: Crucial Connections

Research has shown that women are often more hesitant to ask a connection for anything due to concerns about being perceived as opportunistic, or even weak. Women are generally strong collaborators and communicators, but lack of business-related connections leads to fewer opportunities for recognition and promotion. So, how can women build the critical connections which will lead them to succeed? This session will explore the vital role networking plays in the success of women throughout various stages of their careers, as they pursue opportunities and overcome challenges.
