Replay: Finding Your Place in the Boys Club
This is a replay of our Bosscast event on May 24th – Finding Your Place in the Boys Club!
Finding your place in the “boys club” of business can be intimidating and can sometimes feel like it’s just not worth the effort. Yet we need to do it if we want to progress as leaders.
Whether you’re a new leader, a seasoned businesswoman, a rookie entrepreneur, or a female leader of any sort, you’re guaranteed to benefit from the support of other women. We’re so excited to have Shaara Roman, founder and CEO of The Silverene Group, join us to share 10 key strategies she’s honed on her journey in building a successful consulting practice from the ground up, and how her personal and professional background prepared her for establishing herself and thriving in a male-dominated world.
Michelle Harris, founder of Bosstrack, moderates the discussion.
