This session is primarily geared toward women just starting their careers but applies to any industry folk who've felt marginalized, pushed aside, or lacking in confidence. There will be a dynamic collection of microtalks from women of various industry backgrounds and experiences, with plenty of time for Q&A at the end. Talks will be a mix of anecdotal experiences and data, covering topics like confidence, impostor syndrome, stereotype threat, opportunity, risk, negotiation, networking and mentoring. Each speaker will cover a different angle, such as "Grabbing the Mic". "Applying like a Man", "You're in the Industry: Now What?!", "Find Your Confidence" and "Feelings Aren't Reality". You will leave excited by the opportunities in store, encouraged by stories you've heard, and armed with tools and knowledge to drive your own career success.|
