Career Advice for High Potential Women

Career Advice for High Potential Women

Wanda Hope, Caryn Parlavecchio and Marisa Milton participated on the Achieving Gender Balance in Senior Leadership panel at the 2017 DiversityInc Top 50 event. The panel was very well received and the information these women provided was so rich, we decided to bring them back. This time, we wanted them to give career advice to high potential women, based on what they learned throughout their successful careers.
