Description

Please join us for yet another SCWIST pub night. The speaker of the month is Holly Burton who is a career coach for women in male-dominated industries.

Title: The 3 Pillars of Success for Women in Male-Dominated Industries

Outline: In a world where society discounts women’s voices, it can feel like your career is controlled by everybody but you. This talk covers the foundational three pillars of success and survival in male-dominated industries that will empower you to push your ambition as far as possible. We’ll cover:



  • The box of “acceptable behavior” that society dictates for women at work
  • Inside your control: Exercising all of your “inside the box” options for career advancement
  • Feminist education & the beauty of the pity party
  • Expanding your “box” by figuring out small & large feminist actions you can take to push women forward


The goal of this talk is to give you a look at the unique roadmap to a more empowered career in male-dominated industries.


About The Speaker: Holly is a career coach for women in male-dominated industries. She works one-on-one with ambitious women to help them get promoted and create the careers they actually want in industries they love.

As a mining engineer for the first ten years of her career, Holly was exposed to one of the most male-dominated spaces -- just 17% female. She uses the unique perspective she gained as a woman in mining, alongside her obsessive nerdiness for all things feminism and career to help women create the working world they deserve while they wait for the rest of society to catch up.

Fun fact: She has the world's coolest business cards.
