Whether you're an entrepreneur or working in a corporate environment, the experiences that we face as women are often completely misunderstood, and lead to stigmatization — or worse yet, penalization.
So what does it take to effectively work through mental health or reproductive struggles? How does one combat the prejudice that comes along with aging? What do organizations need to do to support their talent and change internal perceptions around women's health?
On October 29, we sit down with three groundbreaking experts who will not only share their personal stories, but also reveal key learnings for any woman navigating mental health, ageism or fertility challenges. Together they will help unpack associated stigmas in the workplace and the resulting impact on career growth, while providing tangible insights for a path forward.
