How to Be Your Best Self in a Male Dominated Industry and Still Give Yourself Some TLC – Women who want to be true to themselves and overcome their imposter syndrome, come prepared to discover some key takeaways on how to be your best self without mimicking someone else’s career success – define your own.  As a woman, we often have several titles we hold all within a 24 hour period – friend, sister, daughter, mother, wife, mentor, caregiver – but we still want to be a credible leader within our male dominated organizations at work. This session is not exclusively for women.  Male colleagues are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Speaker: Lynn Watkins-Asiyanbi, JBT Corporation
