Whether success is defined as climbing the career ladder, being an empowered, informed individual, or finding resolve in the face of pushback, women should feel they have the resources to learn from fellow allies and to be confident in their missions.
In this event, we share the stories of women through the learnings, challenges, and successes of their journey so far. What steps are necessary to achieve one's goals? How have we tested our limits and changed the status quo in the process? Join leaders from GoDaddy, Udemy, Segment, and YouTube as they share how they've navigated their career path. Meet like-minded professionals and learn how they're overcoming the biggest obstacles in their careers.
