Cultivating Confidence Conversations

In 2017, in partnership with Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, we published The Hard Value of Soft Skills report that helped inform our thinking about confidence, how it can be cultivated, and its impact on professional and personal success.

This report acted as a catalyst to further the discussion around what is needed to change the mindset around women’s abilities and focus on meaningful change for women and communities around the world.

From this, the Cultivating Confidence Conversation series was born. These discussions, happening all over the world, focus on action-oriented steps that need to be taken to break down the barriers holding back women’s success and the solutions that need to be implemented to enable a women to feel confident.

Our theme for this panel was “A Global Perspective on Confidence,” in which we used the D.C. backdrop as inspiration to talk about the larger global issue around confidence in women and the political action needed to drive change.
