Daughters raised in family businesses in the Millennial generation are increasingly seeking the opportunity to be leaders at work and within their communities: the chance to be true stewards of their family’s legacy. As they contribute their talents, skills, values, and experiences, and assume positions of leadership, daughters are likely to reshape the culture, traditions, practices, and policies of family businesses for years to come. The new constellation can be a lever for change in family businesses, with the capacity to shift patriarchal patterns, introduce new ideas, and support the development of both men and women as they adjust to a diverse and changing workplace.

A panel discussion that will tell you everything you need to know about shifting gears into drive for your restart - from how to reskill, to how to rethink your comeback strategy, to how to find your calling in the world of work after a break.

While some career changes may be linear progressions, restarting a career can set you off on another path or career trajectory entirely. The latter could be described as a career pivot.Conventional wisdom used to hold that changing course in your career would inevitably mean starting overt, but that isn’t necessarily true anymore as careers become more flexible and less linear.How do you negotiate to navigate a second career pivot?
