Watermark's Advancing Technical Women with CCL

>> Download Details

This is a one and a half day in-person workshop in San Francisco.
Dec 4-5, 2018   >> REGISTER

At some level, every company today is now a tech company. Whether the enterprise at hand is directly STEM-connected or dependent on various STEM-smart employees, the importance of quality personnel has never been greater.

Watermark and CCL invite you to discover how Advancing Technical Women can give women in your organization the strategic training and leadership confidence they need to take ownership of their career trajectory. Research proves that women who can express fully their unique vision will become their own best advocate — unlocking their natural leadership skills and overcoming institutional, cultural, and personal
barriers to advancement.

Target Audience
Early-to-mid career women in scientific or technical fields from all industries, with approximately 5-10 years of experience, who want to advance their technical or management career paths.

Participants learn how to:

  • Become skilled advocates and agents for their careers
  • Transform personal attributes and strengths into a recognizable “brand”
  • Build strategic networks that improve visibility and promotability
  • Secure and succeed at challenging ‘stretch’ assignments
  • Improve communication skills and presence
  • Develop an action plan empowering them to reach their career goals
"Less than 20% of IT professionals are women…the same with mechanical and electrical engineering…and it’s been quite consistent over a couple of decades…It’s not improving.”
