Her Success is not my failure

Have you ever done something that you are proud of yourself for achieving, only to turn around and realize that those around you are giving you an underwhelming response? Have you felt as though you are battling against other women you work with for no logical reason? Perhaps you have felt envious that things seem to always go right for your female co-workers and not for you.

These are common feelings that women face in their professional and personal lives, yet it is rarely brought to the forefront of conversation. You are not alone! On December 12th we will confront these issues, discuss them openly and provide you with tools to cope with these feelings and situations. We have an amazing panel that will assist in steering this conversation.

Following the panel and open discussion, 3 of Stockholm's budding female entrepreneurs will pitch their startups to the audience. Sound interesting? 

You should attend our event if you are:

An entrepreneur
Working in the technology sector or looking to move into it
Working with a startup or interested in working for one
An investor looking to meet with founders
Looking to expand your professional network
Looking for a mentor
Interested in being a mentor, sponsor advisor, connector
Looking for inspiration to address diversity issues within your organization
