Social research can help us reveal patterns in women's confidence, so that we as women can own our place at the table and our role as leaders. This session will offer an honest look at our own patterns as women, and identify important strategies and concrete actions that women can take so they can fully step into their leadership and nurture confidence and promote leadership development for other women.
