“It’s a truth-telling in the past couple of years that I haven’t seen before in the majority….the likelihood of being believed has increased.”
—Women’s rights pioneer and advocate Gloria Steinem 

What would you ask Gloria Steinem if you could? This February, Steinem spoke at our Watermark Conference for Women in San Jose along with communication expert, award-winning journalist and author (and our new podcast host, but more about that later!) Celeste Headlee

After their keynote appearance, Headlee continued the conversation so you could hear more of Steinem’s singular perspective on the state of women in the year 2019. We think you’ll enjoy their 20-minute conversation, and you’ll definitely think of Steinem the next time you get angry at work—or give your kid a hug.

This panel will share how you can foster a more positive environment at work, tactical strategies to limit digital interruption in conversations and meetings and finally, when there is no other recourse, how to confront effectively, maintaining civility for yourself and those around you.  Read More
