Women's Preconference Workshop


October 19, 2020; 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

After the success of our first Women’s Preconference Workshop last year, we are excited to feature one again this year! This workshop is designed for the women of rubber and will be an interactive session with substance and humor that will provide steps you can begin to implement, as well as longer-term areas of attention, to help you reach your next level of excellence. A panel discussion will open the workshop. Focus of the workshop will be on successes and challenges, building your peer to peer community, and mentoring vs. coaching and the importance of finding both. The event will conclude with an opportunity to network and empower one another during a wine and cheese reception from 5-6pm.

A communication expert, Leslie Ungar, will facilitate this workshop. Click here to learn all about Leslie.
