This workshop will support attendees in building out a concrete career map that sets the stage for them to achieve their goals. We’ll work on actionable planning you can start today, that will help you get to where you want to be in the future. This workshop is led by Sophie Warwick, who specializes in developing in-house gender equity policies and chairing Employee Resource Groups, and Jillian Climie, who has spent her career in executive compensation. Key takeaways from this workshop include:

  • The specific steps to take to help you build out your career plan.
  • Information gathering – both externally, and within yourself.
  • What should, and should not be, included in a career map.
  • The importance of using goals, metrics and timelines.
  • How to address biases women face as they move up in their careers.
