Know To Grow: Male/Female Power Dynamics in the Workplace: How to Position Yourself as a Female to Get What You Want
Presented by Iana Daniels

Thursday, May 23, 2019
12 pm CST
(10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 1 pm Eastern)

Men and women generally differ in the way they view power and how to get what they want out of any relationship. In the workplace, especially male-dominated industries, women can may lose confidence in their ability to climb the ranks. Additionally, women may feel pressured to work in ways that seem unfair and prejudicial to achieve the respect and power. A career soldier, I’ve been the “double minority” (African American and female) and have experienced some of the common struggles that women have working in a male dominated workplace. I have also been fortunate to have had great leaders, coaches and mentors. These men and women pushed me beyond gender and color to enjoy a successful military career. In this webinar, we will discuss power dynamics in the workplace and how, as females, we can position ourselves to reach our career goals.
