Our parents teach us so many lessons throughout our lives, that it's hard to say which teachings prove to be most important until we're adults ourselves. The same can be said about our children who inspire us in ways we may not even comprehend. In this chat, we're welcoming a mother-daughter combo to our virtual stage, to share the lessons they've learned about navigating their careers, combatting inequality in the workplace, and how to develop the next generation of female leaders. 

You asked, they're answering:

  • What was the most valuable lesson the other has taught you?
  • What's the biggest conflict you've faced in your career? 
  • How does being a mom impact your career trajectory?
  • & more!

You asked, she's answering: I'm a young manager, (I'm the same age, if not younger than the rest of my team) what advice do you have for getting my team to respect me? I just joined a team after a long-time manager left the company, things are really awkward - what advice do you have for fitting in with this already close-knit team? Where do you draw the line between "manager" and "friend"? & more!
