Strategies for Success When You are 'The Only One' In The Room - Women in Manufacturing Breakfast Series

Presented by:

"Our goal with the Women in Manufacturing breakfast series is to facilitate real conversations that are focused on topics that matter to women in the industry; create informal mentorship, provide best practice sharing and foster collaboration within the local supply chain. The series will address tough issues and identify solutions to the challenges that women are facing; in an environment that lifts and strengthens one another both personally and professionally. All of this will strengthen the manufacturing industry as a whole."

Strategies for Success When You are 'The Only One' In The Room

As women, we have been educated, equipped and encouraged to go for our dreams—both personally and professionally. We live in a time when women lead Fortune 500 companies, chair corporate boards, and even run for the highest office in the land. While the opportunities are limitless, women still face barriers and challenges that are unique to being “the only one” or “one of a few” in positions of leadership and power. Join Karen M.R. Townsend, Ph.D. for an interactive workshop and lively discussion designed to offer success strategies for women leaders. You may be the only one in the room, but it only takes one to make a difference.
