President's Dream Colloquium Talk: Jo Miller

November 23, 2017

The President's Dream Colloquium, hosted by WWEST Chair Dr. Lesley Shannon, takes place September 13-November 23, and one of the talks will be by Jo Miller. This talk is entitled, "Women As Leaders and Innovators."

We invite you to join the PDC for “Women in Technology: Attracting, Retaining and Promoting Diverse Talent” to explore strategies for advancing diversity in the technology sector, critically analyze the culture that has supported a foundation of inequality therein, and engage in multidisciplinary dialogue about the value of creating more space for women and other under-represented groups in technology.

Jo founded Be Leaderly after meeting too many women with leadership potential that outshone their current positions. In her day job, Jo is CEO of Women’s Leadership Coaching, Inc., and creator of the Women’s Leadership Coaching® system, a roadmap for women who want to break into leadership. She created the Women’s Leadership Coaching® system after interviewing more than 1,000 women and recognizing a common set of challenges encountered by women wanting to advance their careers – especially in industries long considered “a man’s world,” such as technology, finance, and energy. She now delivers more than 60 speaking presentations annually to audiences of up to 1,200 women and has traveled widely in Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East to deliver keynotes and teach workshops for women’s conferences, women’s professional associations, and Fortune 1000 corporate women’s initiatives.
