Outspoken: Amplify Your Voice | 2019 Session

It’s undeniable: Women’s voices often aren’t heard—at work, at home, in every facet of their lives. The fault lies not with women, but in a culture that seeks to silence women’s voices. Communications expert Veronica Rueckert will kick off the session with insights, then join a conversation with expert panelists who will offer advice and skills to help you harness and understand your own voice and learn how to use it with confidence.
