How Career Women Can Leverage Gender Trends in the Workplace

Nika White  (Read More)
Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion, Greenville Chamber

Organizations lose women disproportionately to men because definitions of what is right and good in the workplace are almost always based on a masculine model. Women benefit in the marketplace by leveraging the differences in their feminine style from the masculine style. Doing so creates new opportunities for women to utilize and value the different strengths they bring to the workplace. This session will address this topic with thought provoking discussion.
