I’m in tech and have been for years, although I’m still dealing with men especially who treat me like I know nothing. Regardless of how much I know, do, or showcase my work.

Hi Michelle, I am in industry that is male dominated and I struggle to get my voice heard in meetings (particularly now with covid19). How can I learn to break that barrier and get my voice heard to make an impact?
Azie Spira

Thanks for the engaging session Michelle. You mentioned you were always skilled to find the right connections or navigate the corporate hierarchy. Do you have any further insights on this?
Seraph
01:04:23
I agree w you Sahar.
Emma McCormack

Hi Michelle, I have some staff that are SMEs (subject matter experts) in a field and are struggling to grow/learn in areas of leadership/infleunce - because they are fearful of letting go. How can I best coach them in this space.
Seraph
01:06:05
I find I have to prove myself and know more than other guys.
Emma McCormack
01:06:25
That's a good tip... getting into the meeting early, and engage in the social chit chat before it starts....
Kavita
01:06:33
what can i keep in mind and how to influence an outcome from a lower accountability role than the decision maker/ management stakeholder?
Stephanie

How do I build relationship when my competency is constantly challenged, not because of my skills, but because of their existing bias of what women are capable of?
Seraph
01:06:50

Having a sponsor in leadership really helps in progressing your career, especially being female in an otherwise very male teams. How would you go about 1) establishing a connection and 2) finding the right sponsor who might be willing to take you on?

Hi Michelle, my struggle is to change my response to learning and knowing that by doing small learning is just as valuable as doing large courses. It is also the struggle of when I leave work I am a mum and balancing the time to do that and explore/learn. I've previously worked full time and studied part time and didn't have space for much else. How do you make time to do small learning?
Jodi Steel
01:09:35
hi Sahar, another tip is to make sure you drop the tone of your voice at the end of any statements. a small yet very effective tip :)
Beth Mackay

Agree with Jodi, and be comfortable in the silence. Don’t feel the need to fill it. Thank you for your time, got to jump on my next zoom. Stay safe ladies.

I am a new mum and have returned to work part time, but I find it hard to get involved in meaty work as I am "part time" any tips on how i can get back into the workforce without having a "label"?

Thanks so much Michelle & FitT, sorry have to drop off for another meeting but look forward to learning more from the material you've kindly shared

Hi Michelle, I know a guy in my team who is agressive (in my opinion) and is loved by the team for his tangible results. I went to him for advice about business acumen. However every time I go to men like this in the business. They have ranted and raved for hours about themselves. How do I build connections with these types as they are loved in the company and I know I need to have these relationships.
