    Session Theme: More Than a Woman: Navigating through Multiple Barriers

    We all know that women face challenges at work based on gender.  But what if – in addition to being a woman – there is something else about you that creates additional barriers to success?  Maybe you face stereotypes based on age, ethnicity, disability, or gender identity.  Join us at Atypical Tea to hear from Betty HutchinsRegina Mustafa and Jessi Wangen who are facing multiple barriers such as these.  Learn what additional challenges they have faced and what advice they would give to others to help them be successful.
