12@12: Diversity in the Region – Women in the Workplace
October 12, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us for the 12@12 event, which will be held on October 12, 2016 at 12 pm at Calvert Library in Prince Frederick, Maryland. The registration will be on a first come, first served basis.
This will be a rare and wonderful opportunity to have a rich and engaging conversation about the role of women (and men) in the workplace. The open discussion will be facilitated by class of 16 graduates Michelle Reeves and Carrie Plymire. There will be a short presentation based on Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean in to provide a starting point for the conversation. Topics expected to arise are hidden bias, unpacking the percentage of men and women in the workplace and the boardroom, strategies for encouraging more diversity in the office and sharing stories of success and failure. Price includes lunch.
