Leslie Stiles, board president of the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, shared with the Philadelphia Inquirer why it’s so important to support women’s career advancement through networking, mentoring, leadership opportunities, learning and events like the Oct. 2 Conference.
“It’s my hope that we can help empower women to ask for what they want and to accelerate closing the gender-equality gap. Women should be encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone. We need to break long-held traditional roles, such as a bias for being “nice” at the negotiating table.”
By supporting this conference and the women who attend, we support leadership and innovation, equity, and opportunity. And that can only help us all.
