It's all about the pivot.

As technology has disrupted nearly every industry, many women feel forced to pivot to stay relevant, while others choose to pivot to stay engaged. Still, other women may be struggling to get back into the workforce after taking time off to raise kids — but unsure of what to do next. Words like "hustle" and "grit" have become trendy. And we are told we need to think strategically, cultivate our own brands and sell ourselves. But how do we do that? How do we pivot or radically relaunch our careers?

Getting ahead today requires the action-first, fake-it-'til-you-make-it ethos celebrated in the tech world. But this mindset is not typically a female one. Women tend to be cautious. We overthink our next moves. We might be safer . . . but we're also stuck. What if we had the confidence to take chances, even if we knew we may fail first? What if instead of agonizing over which step to take, we leapt forward quickly?

The session will cover:

  • Growing confidence and presenting with confidence
  • Getting rid of all of those "shrinker" words and "sorrys"
  • Risk taking
  • Engineering serendipity
  • The power of female networks
  • The importance of owning your story
  • How to brand yourself
