Today, the overwhelming majority of international or global assignments go to men. Why is that? What does that mean for women? It happens largely because women all too often fail to effectively advocate for ourselves at work. And the implications are huge: slower promotions, lower salaries, less general management experience early on, and given how many organizations of all types are “global” in nature these days, it ultimately hinders our ability to land CEO and other senior management roles.

Join us for this Jam Session with Perry Yeatman, Founder and CEO of Your Career, Your Terms, to learn:

  • How to decide what type of international/global role is right for you
  • How to effectively advocate for and negotiate landing that role
  • What to do to be successful once you get there
  • How to convert it into ever bigger and better things down the line
