This experience may be familiar to many women: After witnessing men speaking their minds all day, you offer one firm opinion and it immediately gets perceived as angry, rude, or hostile. As a result, women have often learned to preface their ideas with "I'm sorry, but.." and "Don't you also think..." The language of women speaking in meetings is a delicate balance: being direct without being offensive, being accommodating yet strong, being passionate while not seeming emotional. In this session, we will all share experiences and address the biases that have created this language and ways to overcome them.
This webinar is sponsored by the UCLA Anderson School of Management Master of Financial Engineering Program.
