Lead Like a Woman by Mastering the Power Game

March 19, 2020

We all cheer when Beyoncé sings “Girls run the world!” but women don’t run the world…yet.  Getting to a place where women truly lead requires a reckoning with our own relationship to power. 

Are you embracing your power or giving it away?  Do you know how to establish your authority with colleagues at every level, and sustain your influence? 

Learning how to be powerful—while keeping your true self front and center—is what this event is about.

Date: Thursday, March 19, 2020

Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Location: Mayer Brown, 1221 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10020
