PWN Norway Monthly Event - September (Stavanger): “Living Authentically abroad”

12 September 2018 19:00 - 21:00 Scandic City Hotel

Speaker: Alicia Partee - President PWN Norway


"Living Authentically abroad"

 Alicia will share what she has learned along her journey of re-establishing herself as a professional abroad and the role of the leader leading diverse and inclusive organizations. 

This interactive presentation will allow for candid and productive conversations regarding women in leadership who move abroad and must "reinvent" themselves or as Alicia likes to say, "live in harmony."  You will have an opportunity to share your stories,  experiences, and advice, in order to strengthen one another in our ability to live authentically and lead diverse and inclusive teams and organizations. 

Some of the discussion points we will touch on are:

  • What is Leadership
  • Managing your brand - the authentic you
  • Diversity and Inclusion - challenges and our responsibility
