Building an Inclusive Workplace
While creating an inclusive workplace may not happen overnight, we can impact our organizations and campuses by making the change we wish to see in the world starting today. This presentation will discuss what an inclusive work environment is and what each of us can do to get started. The session will cover bias (unconscious and conscious) and how bias affects the workplace, the benefits of incremental change, motivation, developing talent and using data to build inclusive teams.

Closing Keynote: It's Not You. It's Them.
Women continue to be underrepresented in positions of power--in business, public office, and most anywhere else power resides in America. For decades now, the solutions offered have largely focused on fixing women, or training them to succeed and advance in these fields. Initiatives have set out to help women do things like negotiate better, fit into corporate culture, and develop more career ambition. Unfortunately, these tactics are not very effective. Why? Because it's not the women who need fixing. In this keynote address, Dr. Gill will talk about the limits of these women-centered interventions, and what needs to happen to further the meaningful cultural change that will finally level the playing field.

Opening Keynote: Crushing the Confidence Gap: Four Ways for Women to Make the Leap
In the workplace, confidence matters as much as ability--the higher the confidence, the higher the performance. Confidence is the foundation for becoming a strong leader, pursuing challenge, taking risk and putting oneself in a position to learn and grow. Lack of confidence results in risk aversion. Employers lose out on innovation, productivity and strong leadership, while individuals miss out on opportunity, career advancement and personal development. What can be done? This interactive and engaging session teaches women how to develop confidence-building daily practices that transfer to the workplace. Attendees leave with personalized plans for taking action in the areas of reflection, thoughtful consumption, strategic movement and regular recovery. As Jenny Evans says, it's time to "play big, step into leadership roles and start transforming higher education."

Shattering Stereotypes that Hold Women Back to Uncover the Powerful Leader Within
Being a leader today calls for women to blast through the stereotypes and traditional pitfalls that have held them back in the past. There is a new trend in leadership that positions women for greater success. The key is knowing how to engage at a deeper level and connect that engagement to tangible outcomes, so a woman can increase influence, impact, and income. In this session, you'll learn to identify your leadership style and the role you want to play. Belinda Pruyne will give attendees strategies and leadership principles to bring clarity to who they could be as leaders and help them to achieve higher levels of success. As Belinda says, "Create it, Claim it and Own it!"

Three Approaches to Successful Mentoring
Mentoring is a critical part of navigating the professional world. Having someone to guide you through challenging situations, act as a sounding board, and help define goals and how to achieve them is not only necessary, but healthy as well. Women in technology can benefit greatly from establishing mentoring relationships. These relationships don't have to fit a certain mold. They can be formal, with set guidelines and expectations of both parties, and they can be informal. Mentors can be fellow IT professionals, or mentors can come from other professions. Mentoring can also happen in group settings. This session will describe three different mentoring relationships: formal one-on-one, informal one-on-one, and informal group mentoring--including how male allies can be excellent mentors to women in technology. How to establish a mentoring relationship will be discussed, along with how to select an appropriate mentor and the benefits of being a mentor to someone else.
