During DRI2018’s WBCM panel discussion, nearly 50% of session attendees responded that the stereotype they were most concerned with was being labeled as “too aggressive,” particularly when disagreeing with others’ views. Please join us as we take that conversation further with Betsy Sayers, MBCP, ITIL, ICS – IT/DR. With more than 25 years of industry experience, including serving as a DRI Instructor, Betsy shares her views on the best tools to communicate clearly — and with objectivity – while maintaining a style that honors who you are and what you believe. Special thanks to our webinar sponsor OnSolve.

While female business continuity professionals are continuing to rise to higher positions within their organizations and secure greater visibility in the profession, there is still much work to be done. The national conversation around whether women can indeed have it all is just as relevant to women pursuing a career in this traditionally male-dominated field. Last year, DRI International created a Women in Business Continuity Management Committee and committed to several research projects last year to draw attention to the unique needs, interests and challenges that face women in this profession. Now, AnneMarie Staley, the Chair of that committee, will lead a discussion of our findings. Whether you are a woman or you are an individual who works with, supports, or manages women in this field, this session is sure to ignite thought-provoking discussion around an issue that has not been extensively covered.
