The first conference opened my eyes that my path for advancement was misguided. I realized I was trying to be what I thought my company wanted to see in a leader, versus strengthening and accentuating my true authentic self.
As a woman and a young professional, it is often so easy to get beaten down by stereotypes and society when it comes to what success and hard work look like. Attending the IWL Conference helped remind me that success is different for every one and that I have something unique to bring to the world that is all my own. Amazing speakers, great women, terrific take-aways, and I’m already excited for next year’s event!
At IWL you’ve got a lot of women who are in corporate worlds that say “how do I navigate this?” and they’re not getting it within their organization. I think you can get that here.
This conference was life-changing. Really it has been. Now I feel like I have the courage to step out and to make a difference. I’m ready to do that.
IWL has caused a seismic shift in my thinking about leadership, about developing business and about driving my career to make it all I want it to be.
