Predicting the Future: Data Analytics
More than ever, the amount of data contained within our society is growing at an accelerated rate. Our society traditionally associates being analytical with drawing insights from numbers in a spreadsheet– however, data analytics involves much more than that. A data analyst has the power to use data to see trends, issues and relationships in order to improve processes, services, products, operations and finances as well as to remain compliant. The work of a data analyst is comparable to the work of an influencer. Panelists will share how having the ability to work with Big Data is a universal skill that can change the world.
Being “The Woman” in the Room
Women have made great strides in breaking down barriers to take on roles that have previously been male-dominated. However, the struggle is not over once you get your foot in the door. Being one of the only women on a team can present many challenges including: opposition to your authority, exclusion from conversation and lack of recognition for your ideas and contributions. Women are often expected to be “one of the guys” while also upholding their values as a woman. The mission of this panel is to inspire attendees to take a seat at the table and to get your message heard by everyone in the room while remaining professional.
Sustainability describes the ability to maintain various systems and processes — environmentally, socially, and economically over time. We are all responsible for the well-being of society, and therefore we must make our future the cause of the present. As our generation begins to prioritize social responsibility through our interactions with the world and within the workplace, it is vital to continue this momentum and transform unsustainable and unethical business practices. Attend this panel to discuss how both individuals and large corporations can ensure that future generations are equipped and encouraged to make decisions that adhere to the triple bottom line.

Global Perspectives: An International Experience
It is vital to determine your non-negotiables, the passions and activities that you are not willing not give up, in order to maximize your potential for success. There comes a certain point where taking on another task becomes overbearing. For some of us, it can be difficult to say “no”. If you spread yourself too thin, there becomes a diminishing return and the quality of your work begins to suffer. However, if you are able to identify your values based on what is important to you, you will begin to say “no” to the right things and invest your time in the obligations that propel you forward.
