Women in Tech: Brave, Not Perfect — Failure as a Path to Success

Failure impacts women more than it does men, research shows. Women are more likely to be perfectionists and judged harshly for mistakes. It’s no wonder why they tend to be more risk-averse and hesitant to go after what they want.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can change the narrative in our heads, workplaces, and communities. Three women leaders in their fields will come together to share how.

As part of our Women in Tech series, this virtual Tech Talk will feature encouraging words and practical advice about how women can be brave, not perfect, and become resilient, successful leaders. Join us to hear Jen Lucas (Head of Payments for Americas at EY), Maggie Berry (Executive Director for Europe at WEConnect International), and Renata Devcic (Head Of Marketing, Nets Issuer, and E-security services at Nets Group) discuss:

– The realities of gender bias when it comes to taking risks and dealing with failure.
– The challenges of balancing confidence and vulnerability.
– How women can grow into strong leaders who are respected for setbacks and treat them as learning opportunities, not soul- or career-crushing failures.
