Leading with authenticity and inclusivity

Both authenticity and inclusivity are fundamental in successful leadership. Authentic leaders fully participate in their workspace thus developing a more engaged, enthusiastic, and motivated team. Inclusive leaders cultivate an environment where their team members feel valued thereby encouraging them to collaborate, speak up and go the extra mile. So, how do leaders ensure that they are both authentic and inclusive? The speakers in this panel will share:

  • How to ensure that your internal values and beliefs are in line with your external behaviour
  • How to recognize genuine aspects of yourself that should be coming across to other people but are not
  • How to honor your feminine energy and not hide it by altering it to meet the expectations of masculinity in the workplace
  • Practical advice you can use right away to ensure your team members feel included
  • Traits of inclusive leaders

How your personal brand can grow your career

If you want to cultivate a successful career, building a visible and influential personal brand is crucial. A personal brand goes way beyond creative business cards and social media presence. It is about how you present yourself to those who are imperative to your growth. It shows people not only your level of confidence, but also your value, credibility and trustworthiness. Moreover, an influential personal brand will protect your career when the market is in turmoil. By making a name for yourself you secure your career and accelerate your career growth regardless of the outer circumstances.

In this talk, you will learn:

  • How to create a strong personal brand to help you jump start your successful career
  • What to avoid when you create your personal brand
  • Practical ways in which you can leverage your personal brand to move up the corporate ladder

Balancing motherhood and career

Motherhood often has unintended consequences for mothers who want to pursue a career while raising a family; thus the term, "motherhood penalty." While it is not fair, it is a reality that many women face. So, how can women embrace motherhood and still advance in their careers?

The speakers in this panel will share:

  • Their own experiences on how they were able to maintain their careers while entering motherhood or bouncing back after taking a hiatus to care for their child(ren)
  • How women who are looking to have children in the near future can counter the effects of the motherhood penalty
  • How women can balance motherhood and their careers guilt-free

Lift as you climb: Championing women in the workplace

Today, not only women but also men are becoming more proactive in championing women in all spaces - particularly, the workplace. From celebrating other women’s success to advocating for female coworkers, we are slowly leveling the playing field! 

Join us in a panel discussion where both men and women share practical steps that both men and women can take to promote equal opportunities. Our speakers will talk about:

  • How both men and women can challenge the likeability penalty
  • What common unconscious biases shape the decision-making of both men and women
  • How men, in particular, can contribute to ensuring equal opportunities between men and women at work
  • The power of mentoring and sponsoring and how this can help the careers of many women

Growing your influence

While most people equate leadership to authority over others, it is so much more than that. One of the characteristics of an effective leader is their ability to influence others by changing how they behave or think. So, regardless of whether you are in a leadership position in an official capacity or not, you can still lead based on persuasion instead of authority.

In this talk, you will learn:

  • How to lead or coordinate a project in an unofficial capacity
  • How to be seen as an expert in your field
  • How to build trust with your coworkers
  • How your own unique position can influence the organization
  • What to do when people don’t follow your lead
