Having a seat at the table doesn’t matter if you don’t say anything when you’re there. To move the needle on building female leadership, we need to amplify female voices.
This session will explore the importance of finding your voice inside the workplace and beyond. Women need to speak up as influencers, take the stage at industry conferences and build their profiles.
Case in point: Half of attendees at SXSW Interactive last year were women, yet they represented only 36% of speakers. It’s not that women aren’t here; they’re just not speaking up. What’s holding women back? Do the obstacles come from within or outside? And why is it important for women to get loud? Join us to find out.
