Women are woefully under-represented in leadership positions in our state, from business and executives to judgeships and politics. Numerous challenges, both internal and external, continue to hold women back from leadership equality.

Successful leadership requires knowing how to overcome these biases, and "lean in" to leadership opportunities, as well as how to juggle conflicting schedules and priorities, inspire and oversee a team of assistants, and make the hard decisions.

Learn how to "lean in" to your leadership potential, as we discuss how to develop effective leadership skills to make the transition to leadership, and open the doors for more exciting leadership opportunities for qualified women.
