Commanding Your Worth: Overcoming Imposter Syndrome, Self-Biases & Other Pitfalls to Build the Career You Deserve

Women increasingly hold positions of power in the workplace, yet they are more likely to possess lower levels of confidence than men. For women of color, the effects of institutional racism, coupled with sexism, further exacerbate the inclination to question our intellectual capabilities and sense of belonging.

Just as it is our responsibility to own and exercise the power that already exists within us, we also have a duty to nurture our self-awareness, acceptance, self-esteem and worth. This may mean facing difficult truths about internalized roadblocks to our careers.

In this candid conversation with leading women of color in media, entertainment and tech, you will learn how to collect and utilize feedback; align your work with your purpose; know your worth; and pay it forward. Be inspired, empowered and prepared to excel in the workplace and beyond!

 Advance registration required by Tuesday, October 22.
