Do you feel that an intangible barrier is preventing you from achieving professional growth that you deserve? While strides have been made to promote gender equality in the workplace, women constitute a mere 14% of the executive ranks. What are the factors preventing gender parity in leadership positions? What can you do to shatter the proverbial glass ceiling?

 

AWIP Boston is excited to bring you a panel of successful leaders who have successfully risen to the executive ranks and are fostering conditions for others to do the same.
