CM133: Get Out of Your Own Way!

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Hyatt Plaza International Ballroom G

Objective: Guidance
Audience Level: All
Session Type: Panel

Women have to overcome obstacles in order to succeed, but are we part of the problem? Can we recognize our own attempts at self-sabotage before it’s too late? We have five panelists varying in personality from awkward to perceived as aggressive, representing different industries, professions, and length of career debating this issue. Our goal is to inspire women to look to themselves to succeed.
