6:00 - 6:15 p.m. - Registration and networking
6:15 - 6:20 p.m. - Introduction by Staples
6:20 - 7:30 p.m. - Authentically Promote Yourself to Advance Your Career led by Kimberly Meninger
Many women are reluctant to actively promote their value because it feels self-serving or inauthentic. Rather than promote themselves, they prefer to believe that their work will speak for itself. Unfortunately, without the confidence and commitment to share your value with others, you may lose out on important opportunities to raise your visibility, make a bigger impact and advance within your organization.
7:30 - 8:00 p.m. - Networking
