Despite making up nearly half of all entry-level positions in corporate America, women hold less than 30% of VP-level positions and make up just 22% of C-suite executives. Against this backdrop of such staggering statistics that showcase the barriers and deep disparity women face when building their careers – women more than ever are commanding their place in offices in the Pacific Northwest, across the country and around the world. They are founding more companies, negotiating higher pay and taking control of their careers, all while making sure corporate America recognizes their value.
Join us for a powerful conversation about navigating career and life with some of the Pacific Northwest’s leading women. These women will bring a mix of entertaining and sobering anecdotes about how they have broken barriers in their own careers, alongside insights and actionable advice for how employees of all genders, at all levels can support their female colleagues.
Panelists include Amy Nelson, founder and CEO of The Riveter; Kirsten Spoljaric, SVP of People at Zipwhip; Merrie Williamson, VP Azure Apps and Infrastructure at Microsoft, and more!
