Professional women need to focus on developing leadership capability to enable career progression and successfully build strategies to negotiate challenges in order to achieve their goals.

Join our expert panel of Monash Business School alumni as they share their challenges as female leaders in male-dominated industries, and discuss effective strategies and tactics to overcome these. Panellists will discuss:

  • Simple effective strategies and tactics to stand out from the crowd and move ahead in highly competitive environments
  • Achieving your career goals while effectively managing the complex challenges that arise
  • Getting back on track if you have taken the wrong turn or gotten lost along the way.
