Partner Event - Gensler DC SWAG - Leading with Authenticity

April 29, 2019
5:30 PM EDT to 7:30 PM EDT
 Add to Calendar

2020 K Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20006

Researchers have found that feeling authentic at work has been linked to higher engagement, higher workplace satisfaction, better performance and better overall wellbeing. That’s why authentic leadership is so highly valued these days. But what exactly does it mean?

As future leaders, we know we’re supposed to be authentic, but for women, that can be tricky. For one thing, it can be hard to even know what our “true selves” want with all the demands competing for our attention. For another, there are often different expectations and pressures placed on women in the workplace.

Join several established leaders from across our industry for an inspiring and energizing evening as we explore this topic and what it means to lead with authenticity.

Light refreshments and drinks will be provided for attendees.
