Quote: “Learn to be “gender bi-lingual. We can learn the male way; we can learn the female way and be whole human beings that can play on all fronts.” Kristin Engvig
This was such a great interview packed with so much inspirational information that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. Be sure to tune in again next week for part II.
We have all heard of “the glass ceiling” and how it can affect women in business. It’s a metaphor used to represent an invisible barrier that prevents a given demographic (typically applied to women) from rising beyond a certain level in a hierarchy. But what about women who have made it to the boardroom or are currently in leadership roles? How far have we come, and how have our predecessors paved the way for us? On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we’re thrilled to welcome International Networking Expert Kristin Engvig. Kristin joins us to share her leadership journey and discuss how she created the Global Women’s International Networking Conference! This year it’s in Rome on September 20-24, 2022, and I am thrilled to be speaking there!
Kristin is a pioneer and thought leader in the field of creativity, feminine and authentic leadership. She embraces global responsibility through innovative leadership events and personal speaking engagements to inspire women worldwide to become agents of possibility. She was granted the CEO For Life award and the Best Practice Leader award in 2021 and part of the Diversity Global Magazine’s Top 10 Influential Women in Global Diversity. She also won the International Alliance of Women Award in 2010.
