The Strathallan, 550 East Avenue, Rochester NY 14607

Get your Game On (“GO”) at this half-day event focusing on what it takes to be a successful woman in business and lead at any level in your career. Come learn why perfection is not a pre-requisite to leadership, why courage is the new competitive advantage, and why self-care is no longer a luxury but a must have. You’ll also learn key strategies for negotiating your worth whether you’re seeking a new job or staying put, as well as how to deal with toxic colleagues. Lastly, hear some straight talk from Rochester’s leading women in business who have agreed to answer your burning questions in our “Ask Me Anything” panel, focusing on gender diversity in the workplace.

Whatever stage of career you’re in, you will leave with tangible take-aways, key strategies, and an expanded network of amazing professional women. Plus, you’ll design what success looks like for you. Join the Women’s Council and the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce for a one-of-a-kind event designed to get your GO!
