Expert on Women’s Leadership to Speak at Inspired Innovators Virtual Event

The University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center and the Maine Business School will host a virtual webinar featuring Sally Helgesen from 13 p.m. on April 12 for women in the early stages of their career.

“How Women Rise: Changing the Habits That Can Hold You Back From Reaching Your Full Potential,” is free; advance registration is required.

Helgesen, cited in Forbes as the world’s premier expert on women’s leadership, is a best-selling international author, speaker and leadership coach. She ranks sixth among the world’s top 30 leadership thinkers by Global Gurus and is the number one coach for women leaders according to Thinkers50/100 Coaches. 

Helgesen’s most recent book, “How Women Rise,” is the basis of the webinar. The book, which was co-authored with Marshall Goldsmith, became the best seller in its category within one week of publication and has been translated into 17 languages.

This presentation, the third in the Maine Graduate and Professional Center’s Inspired Innovators series, is a collaboration of the Maine Business School, Graduate School of Business, the Maine Law School and the Muskie School of Public Policy.
