How to Take Charge of Your Career
I recently had the honor of speaking to a room full of women at Fordham University on taking charge of your career. The topic was selected specifically in recognition of Women's History Month and to further gender equality. Women -- and men -- I encourage you to commit to helping yourself, and the women around you, to realize your ambitions, achieve gender-balanced leadership, value contributions equally and fight conscious and unconscious bias.
1) Develop yourself continually and purposefully
2) Seek out mentors
3) Embrace networking
4) Ask for what you want
5) Say “yes” to opportunities
6) Give back and pay it forward
