About this Event
There are a lot of myths surrounding women and workplace success. When it comes to the professional women, there's no shortage of generalizations and understanding the complexity, nuances and individual experiences of our panelists is the start of debunking those myths. During this panel discussion, each panelist will share how they have overcome biases including cultural assumptions, compensation challenges and lifestyle choices.
