Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Advancement, Self-Advocacy and Resilience 

Glass Ceiling Panel
Moderator: Rachel Luoma, MS, CAE; 
Chief Staff Executive, VP, Partners in Association Management

Individuals may encounter barriers in the workplace due to gender biases, societal expectations, and stereotypes. These challenges include navigating gender disparities, addressing work-life balance concerns, confronting wage gaps, and contending with a scarcity of diverse role models in senior positions. Moreover, imposter syndrome, a common experience for many professionals, can exacerbate these challenges by fostering feelings of inadequacy and the need to continually prove one's worth. In this discussion, we explore the existence of these challenges and delve into strategies to overcome them.

How can individuals, regardless of gender, strive to break through these barriers? What approaches can be employed to combat imposter syndrome, especially in environments where gender imbalances persist? Furthermore, we'll identify and share best practices that promote the advancement of all individuals in the workplace, fostering a more inclusive and equitable professional landscape.

Join us for a dynamic and empowering discussion that goes beyond acknowledging the gender pay gap, focusing on tangible solutions for closing it and empowering women financial in the process. Together, let’s pave the way for a more equitable and inclusive future.

2:45 pm - 3:00 pm - Networking Break
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm - Closing Keynote:

Taking Risks, Taking Action, Taking Charge.

Tara LiaschenkoSpeaker: Tara Liaschenko, CMM

Taking risks is well, risky, and not something women are always comfortable with. Our brains are hardwired to seek safety and control, so moving out of those comfort zones and into the realm of new opportunities, delegation and decision making can be intimidating. Closing speaker Tara Liaschenko shares her journey towards success through entrepreneurship, reinvention and leadership.
