Program Description
Ambition is assumed to be a prerequisite for success, yet many women are ambivalent about having or expressing ambition. From their varied perspectives, moderator and speakers will address the role of ambition in their own success and in the success of the more junior women with whom they have interacted. They will also discuss such topics as the meaning of ambition; how to communicate ambition in the face of possible double standards; and the existence of generational differences in the way women view ambition.
