2018 Workshops

Sorry Not Sorry
Women start their careers on par with their male counterparts but generally end them earlier having achieved less and earned less. Bias is baked into the system – even in the PR agency ecosystem which employs more women than men. In this session, Lee Caraher, PRC Board member and CEO of Double Forte, will lead us through the topic.

Lee Caraher, CEO, Double Forte – March 20th NYC (Completed)

 

Aren’t We Done YET?
Why, with all the attention on the equal opportunity and the commitment of companies to do better, are we still encountering bias? More important, what can we do NOW to even the playing field for ourselves on the job?

 Assertive Leadership 
PR people tend to be collaborative, but not assertive. And women tend to be less assertive than men. That’s a double whammy we need to fix. Discover and nurture your own brand of assertive leadership.
