Unlearning Silence: How to Find and Use Your Voice People like you are underrepresented — in the industry, meetings, and rooms you’re in. But the truth is you’ve long been underestimated. Told to wait your turn, not rock the boat, and follow the rules. But as you watch other people get the opportunities and promotions you want, you wonder what’s missing.

The common advice “just speak up” falls flat if we fail to recognize the silence we’ve learned and the real and perceived costs associated with speaking up. In this session, we interrogate the role silence plays in your leadership and offer concrete ways to find and use your voice – for the impact you want. Learning Objectives • Understand how you have learned and benefited from silence • Identify your unique value-add perspective • Utilize 3 levers for using your voice • Apply a quick prep approach for speaking up
