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!
