Published on September 25, 2019
Categories Thought Leadership

She got to the C Suite – the top of her game – and she’s famous for leaning in hard. She doesn’t need a microphone to be heard in a boardroom (or a ballroom for that matter).

She creates new rules and doesn’t suffer fools. She is a badass boss. And while fierce, she is far from ferocious. Join She Runs It to hear from intrepid leaders who are shattering the glass ceiling and pulling others up to join them. Fuel your own courage with the lessons they share, and learn their velvet glove strategies for building teams, breaking through barriers & earning the admiration of their colleagues.

The session will include an engaging panel discussion followed by intimate roundtable conversations, hosted by senior executives in marketing, media & tech.
