Professional Development Webinars

The purpose of professional development webinars is to connect women across states, provide a safe and nurturing environment to create personal and professional strategic plans, and identify what kind of support you need to continue to move into positions of power so you can have greater impact and address gender and racial inequality in your community, work and/or your profession.
