DC Swap: Building Women Assn. Leaders: Key is Confidence

When:  May 19, 2017 from 12:00 to 13:00 (ET)

Women comprise 75% of the association and nonprofit workforce, but hold only 45% of the top leadership positions. This can be attributed to a confidence gender gap – and research shows that confidence correlates just as closely with success as does competence.


Join us for a lively discussion about how association leaders are closing this gap by tying their competence to their confidence. Led by Carol Vernon, a certified executive coach and trainer, we will look at what skills, tools, and support help women achieve their full leadership and management potential. Men are welcome too!


Carol Vernon is a leading ICF Certified Executive Coach in the Washington, DC-area, and the founder of Leading Women in Associations, a leadership development program for rising women leaders in associations. She is certified to administer MBTI (Myers-Briggs); Emotional Intelligence (EQi 2.0); DISC; and a wide variety of 360 and communication style assessment tools. As a coach, trainer, and facilitator she has worked with numerous clients throughout the US including associations, corporations and government agencies. She is the leadership communications coach for the Women’s Campaign School at Yale University, and serves in advisory board positions at the professional society level.
