1. The Female Vision: Women's Real Power at Work
Wednesday, September 29, 2010
200 Vesey Street, New York City, NY

Space is limited: RSVP Required

Information: Women see the world through a distinctive lens.  What they see is defined by what they notice, what they value, and how they believe the world should be.  Yet because women's ways of seeing have not been recognized, their potential to contribute remains under-leveraged.  Drawing on original research co-sponsored by the National Council for Research on Women, The Female Vision has fresh and important implications for organizations seeking to engage, energize and support talented women, and for women seeking to develop and sustain their authentic power.
