Wisdom tells us that no one is going to direct your career but you.
However, having both men and women advocates helping throughout your career journey is critical. Women who feel supported and authentically valued at their work will contribute more to their teams, instill a positive company culture and improve overall business results.

Advocates are dedicated to connecting and inspiring women for the purpose of advancing their careers from the beginning of their career, to mid-career and all the way to the senior level. Advocates make a “space at the table” and not only advocate for the women they are helping, but they also push to hire, retain and advance more diverse talent.

Michelle Morris from Verizon Business Group will be speaking on how advocates and fierce allies helped her:
  • Transition from a career in engineering to customer experience
  • Provide an “engineering” voice and speak up within a marketing organization to promote better ideas
  • Make solid career decisions throughout her lifetime
Join us and discover:
  • What compels someone to fiercely advocate for an employee
  • How to identify your advocates regardless of where you are in your career
  • How to use social media and your network to find hidden advocates and influencers
