International Women’s Day Conference 2020 Recap Climbing the Ladder to Get the Bananas

"The International Women's Day Conference made me feel ten feet tall and gave me a new vision of what my career can be." This quote shares how Jeanine Amadodji, a SoftwareONE employee and conference attendee, expressed her feelings about last Thursday's International Women's Day Conference, hosted by the WiT Network. Throughout the day, over 20 speakers bravely and boldly shared their stories, career journeys, and expertise to hundreds of attendees, both physically and virtually.

Topics ranged from gender equity vs. gender equality, the power of sisterhood, to the importance of being brave, not perfect.

One of the biggest takeaways from the day was the importance of being an ally and how doing so can uplift and support others in good times and in times of struggle. Multiple speakers discussed allies that helped them in their careers when they felt depleted, exhausted, overwhelmed, and more.

By the end of the day, there was an overwhelming feeling of inspiration in the air. The International Women's Day conference was not just another event, but rather a day of learning, sharing, and growing. Instead of leaving with a bag full of company swag, attendees left with full hearts and empowered mindsets ready to take their fresh insights and put them into practice.
