From AC to Executive: Leadership Advice for Young Professionals

October 22, 2012, 12:35pm posted by Gabriella Miranda

A group of women here at CK recently joined together to watch the first in a series panels hosted by Ketchum CEO Barri Rafferty entitled, “Real Women Fostering Women’s Leadership.”  The panelists included communications professionals Cheryl Callan of Weight Watchers, Edna Johnson of Michelin and Janet Riccio of Omnicom Group. From leadership advice to the delicate balance of being a respected executive and a cherished mother, this panel of women explored some of the challenges professional women face today, as we create high goals and even higher expectations for ourselves.

As the two female Account Coordinators here at CooperKatz, we were intrigued by the entire conversation. Although the panel leaned toward discussions of female executives balancing work and motherhood, we were happy to walk away with some great advice for young professionals just getting started in the workplace.


Thought Bubble is a space for members of the CooperKatz team to share whatever comes to mind - from news about our company and clients, to insights on the constant evolution of the marketing communications landscape.
