Session 3 |12 to 1 PM ET
Cracking the Confidence Code
To succeed, confidence matters as much as competence. However, evidence shows women are less self-assured than men. How do we tap into flourishing female confidence and nurture it to succeed? In this dynamic presentation by author and publisher Kimberly Eley, we’ll examine the challenges to female confidence, and discuss practical ways to close the confidence gap and empower women in the workplace.
