Climbing the Corporate Ladder… in (Tasteful) High Heels
Jo Stewart-Rattray (BRM Holdich) & Theresa Grafenstine (US House of Representatives)
About this talk
For many years, women have represented roughly half of all university graduates. Yet, there is a lingering imbalance of women that progress to senior leadership positions.
Join two industry trailblazers, Jo Stewart-Rattray, the first woman to serve as CIO with responsibility for both operational and business IT in the Australian utilities space and Theresa Grafenstine, the first woman to serve as the Inspector General of the US House of Representatives, as they discuss how they cracked through the proverbial glass ceiling.
Attendees will get practical advice on becoming a trusted advisor, building your personal brand, joining the “Old Boys Club,” and the art of gaining influence.
Jo and Theresa will also reflect on their careers and share lessons learned on the bumps and bruises they encountered along the way with “What they wished they knew 20 years ago…”
At the end of what will surely be a spirited discussion, attendees will have a chance to pose questions to these two role models who blazed a trail for women in the IT profession.
