Smash the ceiling: Women in senior leadership

Join the DeGroote Women’s Professional Network in for our first event in Toronto as our expert panel shares their insights on smashing the glass ceiling and making transformative impacts in business and society through senior leadership roles. Discussion topics will include how to position yourself as a candidate for senior leadership opportunities, attracting and developing top female talent in your organization, and succeeding in industries with low female representation. The panel will also speak to the value of mentorship and sponsorship, addressing unconscious bias in the workplace, and evolving corporate mindsets towards work-life balance.

Presented in partnership with the C.D. Howe Institute, Women in Capital Markets, McMaster University’s Faculty of Engineering, and The Directors College.

Event open to alumni, business community members, and students.
