|Speaking at Tenable|
It’s hard to believe the holidays are upon us, wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving. October included some great opportunities to network with some wonderful women across the country. I first had the pleasure of speaking at the Arizona Women’s Leadership Forum. This was my first year attending and I will definitely go again next year, the speakers were excellent and the attendees were an impressive group of businesswomen across the greater Phoenix area. I then went across the country to be part of the Women@Tenable event to share the key principles of SheQ – ways to leverage emotional intelligence for women. A timely article was published last month as well: Where Women Fall Behind at Work: The First Step Into Management. I think we have all been focused on improving the numbers of women at the top and achieving that is a slow process. This article highlights the value of doing something very achievable – promote as many women as men as first-time leaders. The article says that alone could create gender parity in the executive suite within one generation.
