In this presentation, Jodi shares her “aha moment” and discusses what she never anticipated while launching a socially responsible product; the long road ahead of her, the hard battle she would fight and learning that her persistence, determination, and passion would serve her well. Jodi knows you don’t need to be a genius, have unlimited resources, or a giant team to create change and she encourages participants to take their best idea, step over fear, find courage, tap into their passion and persist when it becomes difficult.

Research shows that female leaders create companies that are more diverse, innovative and profitable. So, how can you leverage these innate skills on your professional journey? Using more than 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur, including 15 as a leader in the corporate housing industry, Tatiana Dudyez helps you crack the code to becoming a fierce feminine leader. Using tools and tips that create more power, performance and prosperity in your business and life, you’ll see through this interactive workshop that hustling, grinding and working hard is not the only path to success.

|11:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.||Panel | Empowered Entrepreneurs: My Journey to CEO
A 2017 study by the Korn Ferry Institute found that only 6% of Fortune 500 companies are led by female CEOs. Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, this study set a goal of 100 women leading Fortune 500 companies by 2025. This study identified there was no single path to the top and only 12% of those leading knew they wanted to be a CEO; many did not consider becoming a CEO until someone encouraged them to do so. Join this dynamic panel of female industry CEOs as they share what drove them to corporate leadership, how and if mentors played a role and what they found to be their greatest challenges and successes. Let their stories be your inspiration.
