Promotions are one of the biggest drivers of representation.

Do you know how to position yourself for career advancement?

As a professional woman in the workplace, positioning yourself for career advancement means more than understanding the clear-cut obvious skills required for your success. What is really critical for your advancement is that you master the small but powerful skills that are often unwritten and unspoken.
