Leading Courageously When Your Confidence Has Been Shaken: As leaders, we’ve all had moments when our confidence has been shaken. But this can be particularly daunting for female executives when they participate as members of a male-dominated C-suite. Adding to this is that many female executives are empathetic leaders, which can potentially be a double-edged sword for women. In this panel discussion of high-ranking female technology executives, speakers will share their lessons learned and advice on how to overcome moments of self-doubt.
Reimagining the Business – Leading and Innovating in Times of Radical Change. When the world changed, companies across most industries had to develop radically new business models and digital services in order to survive and move forward. This includes driving a culture of speed and digital fluency throughout the organization. Here, a panel of top global female technology executives will share their perspectives on how they led this radical change in business innovation and cultural transformation.
Reflections on Career-Defining Moments – Stories of Career Ascent Strategies. Nearly every senior executive has experienced a point in time in their career ascent that has helped to define them. For female executives, these junctures have often given them the confidence to reach higher and pursue their ultimate goals. In this panel, female executives will share their first-hand accounts of positive and difficult moments that helped shape their careers, along with motivational and inspiring messaging for female technology executives to path their own path.
“Women are a powerful yet underrepresented group in the technology sector who often face unique barriers to advancement,” said Jennifer Wesson Greenman, CIO, Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global who is both a Chairperson and a speaker at the upcoming summit. “I’m honored to participate in the HMG Global Women in Technology Summit so that I can learn from other female technology executives and contribute to the professional growth of my colleagues across all industries.”
