About the Event
Have you experienced your own “mirrored door” or seen it with the women you work with? The place where, when presented with opportunities, we hesitate and deem ourselves not ready or worthy enough to move forward? Join Professor Ellen Connelly Taffe as she draws on her research, stories from her own career, and those of her students and the mid-late career women she has coached, to explain why the five perils of success get us to a certain level, and then may prevent our taking the next step in our careers as expectations rise. Professor Taffe’s newly published book The Mirrored Door: Break Through the Hidden Barrier that Locks Successful Women in Place delivers powerful insights for women and those who lead women on the behaviors and narratives that often hinder career progression. She offers an empowering framework to navigate workplace challenges with greater awareness and expertise. Discover how societal expectations and distorted self-reflections can impact your career trajectory and learn actionable strategies to overcome them. Don't miss this opportunity to open the door to new career possibilities and unleash your full potential.
