Speaker: Michelle Clark

Abstract:  Women make up more than one half the professional workforce yet represent just 19% of the U.S. Congress, 5% of Fortune 1000 CEOs, and 17% of Corporate Boards.  Why are the numbers so low?  How can it be that in 2014 we may find we're the only female in the room?  

This presentation will explore the potential environmental and gender bias factors that create challenges for women in achieving their full potential as leaders.  We will discuss why what we say, how we say it, and what we do matters and what each of us can do to support other women and achieve our own full leadership potential.
