This is a 90 minute video on demand panel discussion (recording from our live event) on career offroads and onroads – navigating a woman’s career in business. It is based on a Harvard Business Review report entitled “The Hidden Brain Drain: Off-Ramps and On-Ramps in Women’s Careers.”
Our panelists share personal insights on career off-ramps and how these off-ramps have impacted their careers. They share strategies to on-ramp after taking time off to raise children, care for elderly parents, or to manage other life experiences.
The course lessons include audio discussions from our panelists on negotiating tips, confidence advice, mentorship, career inspiration and thoughts on gender diversity in the workplace.

"A big win for me is when one of my team members or someone I have supervised in the past has gone on to be successful, has landed client coverage and then they tell me it's because of something they learned from me. That's truly one of the most rewarding parts of what I do."

"As a woman working in a female dominated industry, it’s important to stand out from the crowd and offer an edge that will allow you to rise above. Know your worth and prove yourself in your organization. There will always be challenges, but hard work, determination and passion will trump anything."
