Diversity Roundtable Breakfast
Diversity in the workplace is an important issue. Last week’s Kleiner Perkins workplace discrimination case resulted in uncomfortable discussions about whether company cultures exclude some of us from the best opportunities or positions. It’s understood that career advancement directly relates to the professional network that you cultivate.
Please join C.J. Venkataraman, Seattle SIM member and Chief Digital Officer at Vera Whole Health with Allison Guidette, Chief Executive Officer at G2 Web Services for a May 20th breakfast and networking roundtable at the Seattle Technology Leadership Summit, hosted by Seattle SIM.
We’ll discuss questions like these:
“How do I develop authentic leadership versus acting like the other guys?”
“What can I do to help other women and minorities grow into leaders?”
“What is involved to build effective networks within our companies?”
When: 7:00 AM – 8:20 AM on Wednesday, May 20th 2015
Where: Seattle Convention Center, Floor 6
800 Convention Place, Seattle WA 98101
Cost: No charge to qualified attendees
RSVP: online or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org Space is limited, please schedule your attendance today.
