Facing Fears of Failure & Closing the Confidence Gap

WiM Community Chat with Veronica Braker

Date: Thursday, July 23, 2020

Time: 2 - 3 PM ET

Where: Zoom

Join us for a WiM Community Chat focused on overcoming fears of failure and how we can close the confidence gap between men and women.

Women now earn more college and graduate degrees than men do and we make up half the workforce. Global studies have found that companies employing women in large numbers outperform their competitors on profitability. Despite these facts, the statistics show that at the top of most organizations, women are nearly absent, and our numbers are barely increasing.

During this chat, we will examine how our own experiences have been effected by fears of failing and discuss solutions to empowering one another and ourselves to be more confident.

We'll be joined by Veronica BrakerSenior Vice President of Global Operations at Archer Daniels Midland and member of the WiM Board of Directors

We'll kick off with an interview between Allison and Veronica about her experiences, then participants will go into small groups to have conversation about facing fear of failure and growing confidence.


We can't wait to see you there!

Questions for Veronica or the group discussion can be submitted when you register. If you are interested in facilitating one of the small group discussions, please email
