AD2SF Presents “Women in Workplace” Panel

AD2SF Presents “Women in Workplace” Panel
Event on 2013-07-17 18:00:00

With the addition of the new Diversity board position, AD2SF is thrilled to launch our new diversity initiative by hosting a panel discussion about women in the workplace.

What are the common barriers that keep women from getting ahead, both external and self-imposed? What can we do as women and men to overcome these barriers? How can we successfully balance other life priorities with work?

We will explore how women can advance their career by overcoming barriers and striving to find a happy balance between the pressures of a challenging and rewarding career and other life priorities.  

In this special AD2SF event, there will also be a discussion titled: "What I wished I learned earlier in my career." We look forward to seeing you!

6-630pm: Networking with drinks, wine, and snacks*
6:30-7:30pm: Panel discussion with Q&A 
7:30-8pm: Closing remarks
