WIB-Texas: Find YOUR Voice and Advance YOUR Career - Webinar Discussion, May 18, 2020

Posted By Amber Miller, Tuesday, June 30, 2020
The Texas Chapter of Women In Bio held a live webinar on May 18, to discuss two related topics: how to use your voice and advance your career. This discussion was inspired by two webinars present by WIB National: Speak Up and Succeed: How to Find Your Voice to Make an Impact by Kristin Backstrom and An Executive Woman’s Guide to Advancement by Robin Toft. Both presentations have unique perspective ideas with overlapping topics that really complement each other.

Our leadership Vice Chair, Sarah Kurley, did a fantastic job of leading the discussion. In attendance we had women ranging from early to late stage in their career, all were looking to learn more about how to be engaged and prepare for the next step. Attendees joined us from across the country. After introductions, we dove into the subject matter! Topics covered included the importance of networking and your connections, being creative to find alternative paths to obtain training that you want, how to approach someone for sponsorship, showing your managers eagerness to know the path for promotion, and to value your own worth and be brave enough to speak up at meetings.

It was wonderful to hear about different experiences and the willingness of everyone to provide advice or assistance to those looking for encouragement and information. In her presentation, Robin Toft said, "You are the CEO of You". The women that joined us definitely encompass this spirit and are eager to show the world what they are capable of!
