As women, we navigate a delicate balance when we show up to the office. We're told to dress professionally to be taken seriously, but not so seriously as to come off as rigid. Dress in a feminine way, but don't become sexualized. Trendy clothes are in, but dress for your age. Hear from two professionals who present differently but have the same objective: be seen as an expert in their field while being comfortable with who they are. Join our discussion as we explore the rewards and cost of presenting authentically at work.
