Women hold over half of all professional jobs today, yet they represent just 4 percent of CEOs in the S&P 500. Even worse, that percentage has barely budged in a decade. In every industry, from private equity investing to network television, women are under-represented in leadership and paid less than men for the same work. That’s where The Influence Effect comes in. Based on recent research Diana will discuss the findings in her recent book "The Influence Effect" which begins with the premise that what works for men at work won’t work for women. Some nuggets of wisdom include "We gain more from our efforts when we focus on achieving influence, as opposed to playing political games." and "Women should never need to act like men in order to succeed as leaders." Join us for a great discussion on the importance of influence.
We will start the evening with a taco bar from Queen City Catering and networking. Diana will speak from 6:30 to 7:15 and answer questions from the group from 7:15 to 7:30. We'll then have open networking and a dessert bar from 7:30 to 8:00.
