Having It All
Women in the corporate world -- including the channel ecosystem -- often struggle to strike the right balance between outside responsibilities and staying competitive in their careers. During a career discussion at The Channel Company's Women of the Channel West event in Napa, Calif., on Monday evening, speakers asked attendees a simple question: What are you doing today to prepare for the career you want tomorrow?
Recent studies from The Channel Company’s Women of the Channel initiative and the Korn Ferry Leadership Institute identified barriers women face at work, as well as a set of strategies that women -- regardless of where they are in their careers -- can use to set themselves up for success in the future.
Luanne Tierney, senior cybersecurity marketing executive for Proofpoint, Sunnyvale, Calif., and Wendy Beecham, managing principal at Korn Ferry, a Los Angeles-based leadership and talent management consulting firm, identified the top six skills that women looking to get ahead in their career should work on, and shared the eight game-changing career moves that can help build these skills.
