Real Talk: The C-Suite—What It Takes and How to Get There | Skills + Capacity Series

On October 7, it’s time to get real. In a new style of masterclass workshop, we at Lean In Seattle will be tackling big, meaty, actionable content designed to work as a quantum leap to our mission of moving women forward. After the Lean In and McKinsey’s Women in the Workplace, study found that in 2015, 90% of new CEOs were promoted or hired from line roles, and 100% were men (with women holding only 20% of SVP level line roles), we knew that line roles + the C-Suite needed to be a hot area of focus. So, if you want to get to the C-Suite, be a part of critical business conversations, or learn how to create your own path to both, do.not.miss.this.  

It’s about to get real. Are you ready?
