Event Overview
ICMA Women’s Network held its inaugural event in Madrid, in which a panel of inspirational industry figures discussed their career paths and how they managed their progression. With the benefit of insights from a professional consultant, they considered how unconscious bias in the workplace affects career development, and influences our opportunities and the ability to network successfully. The panel also considered how to managed unconscious bias, and the advice they would give their younger selves for boosting confidence and raising profile.
