Leadership Summit for Women -Prof. Maja is key note speaker

I’ll be speaking at the upcoming Leadership Summit for Women on Saturday November 12th, 2016 at 2:30 pm in Hamilton, Ontario. The title of my talk is “Hey Ladies, Stop Apologizing” and I’ll discuss  the ways our internal barriers of fear, confidence and mindset negatively impact women’s careers.

Among the problems women face:

  • We’re perfectionists.
  • We apologize. ALL. THE. TIME
  • We’re over thinkers (especially when we make mistakes!).
  • We don’t self-promote.
  • We’re obsessed with being nice.

This is a half-day conference with the goal of  developing leadership skills and facilitating conversations about meaningful change within our organizations, communities and society at large.

This is a community-wide event that brings together women, trans individuals, and allies from the McMaster and Hamilton communities. This event provides the skills, space, and support for all participants to reach their full potential.

The event takes place at the David Braley Health Sciences Centre (100 Main St. West) 

Admission is free!
