Management Skills for Women: Becoming the ideal manager

Managing at agencies is challenging, given the client-driven, fast-paced, and entrepreneurial nature of the business.  Vague bosses, demanding clients and getting the most from less experienced staff can be a challenge to the most skilled manager.  Add to this, double standards, gender pay gaps, work-life balance and the challenges continue to mount. Most management challenges cut across gender lines; however there are some that disproportionately affect women more than men.

Join Pam Bloore, co-founder of Filament Inc, who will address the aspects of the management role that can require extra attention for women to navigate. Pam will help you become aware of, recognize and make the most of your strengths as well as avoiding common management mistakes.
