 Roam Dunwoody

7:30am – 10:00am

Join us as we partner with Pathbuilders and Moore Colson to share the four key stages of a woman’s career.  This is a free two-hour continuing education (CPE) seminar designed to provide women in corporate accounting with the information to make smooth transitions between the prescribed stages that Pathbuilders has identified.

Event Description:   

For more than 20 years, Pathbuilders has partnered with companies to help them to build strong pipelines of talented women, ready to take on complex business challenges.  In our session, we will share insights on both the business case for gender diversity and some of the latest research on why gender matters in leadership.  At Pathbuilders, we have identified the Four Key Stages of a Woman’s Career.  Using our proven methodology combining leadership development and mentoring, we are privileged to work with these women as they prepare themselves for the next move.  At a glance, the four stages are:

Stage One:  Pathbuilders InsigniaSM – women entering the workplace, making their first mark on their organizations.

Stage Two:  Pathbuilders Percepta® – women learning to manage people and projects, taking charge of their careers, and focusing on driving results.

Stage Three:  Pathbuilders Achieva®- mid-level, multi-functional A-players learning to navigate corporate culture, establish executive presence, influence key outcomes.

Stage Four:  Pathbuilders Inspiria® – women leading their organizations, creating high-performing cultures, inspiring others to achieve great things

In this fun and engaging session, we will work within the context of what we see as the four key stages in a woman’s career, highlighting the specific challenges and opportunities that exist at each stage as well as the developmental focus areas, methodologies, and interventions that position high-potential women to grow and advance.  We look forward to sharing ideas, hearing the real-life stories from the members of our distinguished panel, and exploring not only what got them to where they are today but also what is next on the horizon for them.
