Women's Leadership Live
Imagine a community of women, more than 85 million strong and counting, in which each individual is a pioneer—a disrupter—an innovator—a visionary. These are collectively today’s women professionals, entrepreneurs and those in transition, either stepping back into the workforce or those determining what their next steps are. It is this community to which Women’s Leadership LIVE is devoted.
Today’s women executives face a dizzying array of challenges and pressures in a complex world where the business climate is constantly changing. At Women’s Leadership LIVE we equip women to become leaders in their respective industries to meet these challenges while forging strategies to help them build on current successes.
