At this time in history, women lead two of the major European powers, Germany and the United Kingdom and a woman has been nominated to be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States. Women have either led and or have had leadership roles at major technology companies and academia including Hewlett Packard, IBM, Motorola, Facebook, Yahoo, MIT, Harvard, Brown Universities and many more.
Much progress has been made, but we have the opportunity to bring even more women into STEM fields. During this journey it is important to pause, listen and applaud those who through their dedication and hard work, courage and determination have paved the way towards our collective progress.

Workshop by Jo Miller
Women who break through into leadership positions in business get there by mastering the art of influence. Understand the mechanisms of power and influence within your organization whether you are in Academia, Corporations or non-profit. Identify six sources of influence you may not be fully utilizing. While Positional and Direct Influence are easy to understand, the art of Expertise and Relationship Influence is more subtle. Learn how to grow your sphere of influence and sometimes identify your sphere of influence. Leave with a personal action plan to enhance your credibility, build an influential network, and make a larger impact in your organization and for your organization.
