Description: Join in on a very important discussion that impacts all women in corporations. Women in corporate settings often experience similar hurdles to advancing their careers. In the next event in the 2019 CWCC Corporate Women Series, we'll hear from prominent female leaders as they explore the top three things that prevent women from growing in the workplace:
Unconscious Bias & Corporate Culture
Lack of Mentorship & Sponsorship
Communication & Inner Voice
Topic: Creating Value in a Corporation: Get Acquainted with the Math
This discussion will help corporate women to better understand how companies think about the measurable value that individuals bring, in particular the importance of revenue generation.

This will include some discussion on the mechanics of building a work plan that clarifies the activity and resources required to achieve financial goals.
