    Join the Women's Leadership Network for a dynamic conversation: Coming Forward - Advancing Yourself in the Workplace

    About the Program
    Unprecedented changes are underway in our workplaces. There are many movements inspiring people to come forward and speak up about their unique experiences, including sexual harassment in the workplace, to bring greater parity, fairness and safety to our work environments. At this program, moderated by women and workplace expert, Debbie Epstein Henry `94, panelists will discuss how to make changes in our workplaces and in the law to ensure that our work environments are hospitable for everyone to thrive. Panelists will share affirmative ways for attendees to advocate for themselves. Attendees will be encouraged by a broader dialogue about necessary changes across industries to facilitate equity, engagement, and advancement as well as positive action steps for both employers and employees to ensure successful careers and beyond.
