Panel Discussion Topic

Just Say Yes - Don’t pre-select yourself out of an opportunity

Women have a lot of different things going on in their lives. Between work and family, it is hard to find time even for yourself. Jumping up to say “yes” to a new opportunity is not our first instinct.

Frequently, we reason ourselves out of asking for the promotion or applying for a new job:

“I am too busy already”...“I only have 65% of the requirements for this job posting”...“Other people in the office deserve this promotion more”... “I am not spending enough time with my kids”

In this panel session, we will hear from three fascinating women that have been in this situation. We will hear how they analyzed the risk vs. the benefit of each opportunity and the results.

Suzanne Grant, CEO, Canadian Advanced Technology Association (CATA)
Stef Scrivens, Partner and Executive Director of Sales, Transparent Kitchen
Sandra Saric, Managing Partner, Inclusive Path

Moderator:

Julia Elvidge, Advisor, Investor, Board Member and former President of Chipworks

Look forward to seeing you there.
