When There’s No Line at the Ladies Room

Keynote by Lisa Fey

Have you ever noticed that there’s no line in the ladies room? At work that is. Lisa Fey did after she talked her way into a job at The Coca-Cola Company. Over her career, she did see a line start to form. Based on her 30 years in a male dominated industry, Lisa compiled a set of rules. Her rules are based on her personal stories and experiences, which will illustrate what went well, what didn’t, and what she wish someone had told her. These insights will help you identify things that may be holding you back, and what you can do about them starting NOW.
