About the Event

Join us for a 3-part series on building relationships.  Because forging valuable relationships in and outside the office make us all more likely to be successful together than as individuals .  We are going to dig in to building relationships that are beneficial for all parties from individual relationships to larger teams; in the office and out!

The workplace is often presented as a meritocracy, where you can succeed by putting your head down and working hard. Wall Street veteran Carla Harris learned early in her career that this a myth. The key to actually getting ahead? Get sponsors: people who will speak on your behalf in the top-level, closed-door meetings you're not invited to (yet). Learn how to identify and develop a productive sponsor relationships in this candid, powerful conversation - Adapted from Carla Harris' Ted Talk - How to find the person that can get you ahead at work.
