Learn how to live in, build and optimize a robust web of relationships that will shape how you and those in your sphere grow.

Productivity is the key word for one’s early career, but people is the key word for the next stage. Here, your potential is no longer measured on how well you perform (that’s the assumed minimum) but on how well you manage people and build networks of influence. At Carnegie Mellon, we recognize that the aspirations of many women are multidimensional. We work for many reasons, including: creating connections to colleagues; giving back to community; recognition; and more. To sustain our ambition, we need to tap into the full range of our aspirations.

Participant takeaways:

  • A clear understanding of the vital importance of strong networks for career success.
  • Clarity on how to build networks of influence while being true to yourself.
  • An assessment of the quality of their own networks.

  • Reclaimed ambition, enthusiasm and tools to sustain drive.
  • Newly identified role models.
  • Boosted confidence.
