TOPIC: “Own It: The Power of Women at Work” Among the highest ranked women ever to have worked on Wall Street, Sallie Krawcheck has drawn on her unique experiences (and the battle scars she has to prove them) to offer a fresh and contrarian outlook on how to successfully navigate your career. We are honored to host this event, where Sallie will relay insightful lessons that she has captured in her new book, Own It: The Power of Women at Work. With probing questions posed by author and workplace expert Debbie Epstein Henry, Sallie will invite listeners to throw out stale definitions of what success looks like and embrace the qualities that make them amazing collaborators, extraordinary leaders, and invaluable assets to their companies and firms. Sallie will share her views on how the world of work is changing and how these changes play to women’s innate strengths. She will inspire us to see that rules can be changed and, in doing so, positive change can be effected: at work, at home and in society at large. Sallie will leave us with the powerful message that change is real; it’s coming fast, and women can accelerate it. It’s time to Own It.
