In this powerful session, influential leaders on the frontlines will share how they have succeeded in courageously driving change in the midst of big challenges. You will learn strategies for how to stand up for yourself; positively gain traction with others, including bosses; and ultimately break barriers—whatever the pushback and bumps you face along the way.
