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.
Now that there are more job openings than people to fill them, 2019 is the time to get serious about being the best company you can possibly be. This is the year to put significant resources into winning great people in order to grow. Kathleen Quinn Votaw, TalenTrust CEO and a 2019 CWCC “Top 25 Most Powerful Women” honoree, offers keynote speeches and workshops on human capital strategy to business leaders across the U.S.
Her firm’s 2019 Hiring Guide outlines six key areas of focus: strategic HR, culture and brand, engagement, technology, recruiting imperatives and social enterprise. During this executive workshop, she’ll focus on two key points: 1) developing culture by design vs by default and 2) treating recruitment as an ongoing and strategic sales process. She offers relevant data, expert perspective, engaging stories, and actionable advice.
