What You’ll Learn In This Mentor Chat
As professional women, we can face all kinds of hurdles as we try to rise in our careers. So often we think as long as we keep our head down and keep working hard, sooner or later, our work will be noticed and we will get that promotion that we deserve. Of course, it doesn’t always work that way, and it could be a very long time before we see any results of all our hard work.
Studies show women are anywhere from 35% – 47% less likely to get promoted than their male counterparts. One way to reduce that gap is for women to take ownership of their career trajectories and actively work towards getting that promotion that they desire in a smart and confident way.
