Advancing Women In Leadership 
Advancing Women_Butler
Women continue to blaze the trail to advance to the top of organizations, currently holding about half of the country's managerial and professional jobs. While this is a dramatic increase from 20 years ago, women are still vastly underrepresented in the senior executive ranks.


As women navigate the path to higher management positions, they are challenged to define and develop their unique leadership style to enhance their effectiveness and impact in their organizations. Women must proactively manage their growth and development to prepare for the leadership roles they desire.


Through an action learning approach, Advancing Women in Leadership will help you uncover and integrate your unique strengths and qualities that will help you thrive and succeed in your current and future leadership roles.


Advancing Women in Leadership will be based in part on the Emotional Intelligence leadership methodology. To enhance real life learning, participants will participate in a variety of learning methodologies, including self-assessments, lecture, case study discussion, reflection, experiential and action-based role playing and peer coaching. Outcomes include 360-degree assessment, a personal leadership development plan and peer coaching skills.

Featured Breakout Session: Get Social. Personal Branding 101


Kyle Lacy, Meggie Dials, Dawn DeVirgilio, ExactTarget 

We all know the importance of defining corporate brand strategy but we often overlook the importance of personal brand strategy. With the ever-evolving digital space and the desire and ability to extend our reach, interests, beliefs, etc., social media opens up a much deeper and wider marketplace in which you have to manage your personal brand.  


This session will cover the basics of social media and help you extend your personal brand on-line. Led by a group that arguably has a higher combined Klout score than Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, ExactTarget's own will get you thinking and managing your personal social brand smarter. With any branding exercise, 

the goal is to differentiate yourself. Hear from the ExactTarget trio who will help you understand how they've done it and offer best practices along the way.

Featured Book of the MonthLean In
By: Sheryl Sandberg
Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry.  This means that women's voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women's progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. 
It's a Man's World
A reaction to Sheryl Sandberg's, Lean In
Contributed by: Maggie Anderson, Director of Marketing


The inevitable truth: it's a man's world. 

  • Of the 195 countries only 17 are led by women
  • Women hold only 20% of seats in parliament globally
  • Only 21 of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women
  • Women hold only 17% of exec officer positions, 17% of board seats, and 18% of our elected congressional offices 

Despite the fact that women are graduating with more college degrees than men, the climb to the top has seen little

 improvement.  According to Catalyst studies, the number of women in executive offices has actually stagnated in recent years.  Nearly a century after women gained the right to vote and 40 years after Fortune 500's first female CEO, we still have a lot of work to do.


Luckily, Sheryl Sandberg has taken on the campaign anew.  In her recent book, Lean In, the Facebook COO takes a new approach to the battle for gender equality.  Instead of just blaming the "old boys club" or high-level men for keeping women out of the C-suite, she points the finger inward as well- at women themselves. read more →...�

Women are their own worst beauty critics.  Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful.  Why are women's self perceptions so harsh when the world sees something completely different?
