Advancing in your career while making a positive impact can sometimes be difficult to navigate. One way to position yourself is by leveraging intrapreneurial behaviors. According to The Muse, intrapreneurs are creative freethinkers who are passionate about sharing new ways to get things done.  Whether you are a founder of a start-up or an employee in a larger company, how can you maintain an intrapreneurial mindset while setting yourself up for success? What characteristics and attributes can you instill at any point in your career to remain nimble and gain the support of the people around you?
The need for female intrapreneurs is more evident than ever. According to McKinsey’s Women in the Workplace 2019 report in collaboration with LeanIn.org, the number of women in senior leadership positions have grown over the past five years. This is particularly true in the C-suite, where the representation of women has increased from 17 percent to 21 percent. Still, the overall representation of women in the C-suite is far from parity. About 1 in 5 C-suite executives is a woman – and only 1 in 25 C-suite executives is a woman of color. 
From advocating a new business idea, fundraising resources for a project, motivating a team, and everything in between, being an intrapreneur can be an asset to your own brand and success. This session will explore why you should consider being an intrapreneur and how you could be one at any company.
