While the share of women in senior leadership roles is increasing, women still face unique obstacles and challenges to growing their careers. As the world faces unprecedented challenges including conflict, climate change, and poverty, more women are stepping forward to create the kinds of societies they want to see, even against the odds. What will it take to empower more women to step into the kinds of leadership roles that will enable them to make an even greater impact? 

On International Women’s Day, join Smith Business Insight for this free 60-minute webinar on what it takes to become a leader today and how to get there. 

Panelists Wanda Costen, dean of Smith School of Business, Jane Philpott, dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Queen’s University, and leadership consultant Kim Fulton will offer their insights and inspire you with stories of hard-won successes moving up the ladder and beyond the glass ceiling. 

You will learn:

  • What women can do to promote their own career advancement
  • Common obstacles that get in the way of career growth (and how to get past them)
  • Why too many women hold themselves back from chasing their dreams
  • How to find a mentor and work with allies who can help you succeed
  • Advice for women just starting out in their careers
  • How to be an ally for women on their path to success

Following the discussion, there will be time for a Q&A with our speakers.
