Join us for an engaging Luncheon and presentation, with roundtable discussions and group participation, led by JJ DiGeronimo, a woman in tech and award-winning author of The Working Woman’s GPS, Accelerate Your Impact, and SEEKING.

Wednesday, May 24
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 2 p.m. (ET)

Accelerate Your Influence and Impact
STEM-based companies and roles create unique obstacles and opportunities, especially for women wanting more influence and impact to make their goals a reality.  In her work and travels, JJ has found that many women in these types of companies and roles are so busy working in their careers that they do not have time to work on their careers?  The sad truth is that working hard and delivering results within your current role does not always align with future opportunities or areas of impact.  

Of course, opportunities, areas of influence, and promotions appear for some, but for many, it takes more than just great results in your current role. The good news: With today’s access to information, people, and groups, there are easy yet actionable strategies to elevate your relevance, brand, and sponsorships to accelerate your professional goals. 

Women that attend this session will discuss strategies to:
- Highlight self-imposed boundaries
- Create time for new commitments to increase your relevance
- Identify common career obstacles for women
- Showcase your accomplishments & successes
- Evaluate future projects and requests 
- Identify mentors and sponsors

Even if you are not looking to increase your impact right now, it is still important to prioritize the right activities so that when you are ready to create additional influence and impact, the foundation to propel forward is ready and available.

Registration Fee: $50
