Kick Some Glass: Succeeding on Your Own Terms

Sponsored by: Cushman & Wakefield Women’s Integrated Network

Portia Mount, Ingersoll Rand

Monday, June 24, 9:30-10:30 a.m.

Portia Mount, vice president and global leader of strategic marketing at Ingersoll Rand, is passionate about women’s leadership issues and helping women succeed. During this special spotlight session, Portia will share a snapshot on the landscape for women in leadership and the gaps she saw in career advice literature that lead her to write Kick Some Glass: 10 Ways Women Succeed at Work on Their Own Terms. During this engaging session Portia will focus on some key themes from her book, such as learning why understanding your values is key to having a sense of purpose and the choices and tradeoffs you'll make. She’ll also explore mentorship and why women tend to miss out on sponsorship – and what to do about it. You’ll also learn the three kinds of networks you need to advance your career. This is a leadership session you will not want to miss.

Inclusion is a Verb: Six Practices for Creating Inclusive Environments for Greater Business Success

Patti Digh, The School for Inclusion + Activism

Tuesday, June 25, 10:45 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Diversity is a noun--it’s something you have (or don’t have) in your organization. Inclusion, on the other hand, is a verb--it’s something you do, mindfully and intentionally, to create an environment in which diversity can flourish and thrive, adding greater value to your business. In this talk, Patti Digh will outline six practices for creating more inclusive environments in your business, utilizing diversity and inclusion not as ends in themselves, but as powerful tools for achieving your business goals.
