About the event


An inspirational and educational session for NextUp Southern California attendees.

Participants in this session will understand what it means to be a Confident Female Leader and walk away:

· Gaining the courage to be heard and be confident in the workplace & in life

· Introducing small strategies that will build their workplace confidence & decrease thoughts of imposter syndrome.
