Empowering people to work for what they believe in is a vital part of the Cole Haan ethos, and the brand has been supporting women in the workplace for the last four decades with comfortable, versatile, stylish shoes and accessories. Since its inception, Ladies Get Paid has been empowering women to reach their career goals and achieve the compensation they deserve. That’s why Cole Haan is proud to partner with Ladies Get Paid in pursuit of their greater mission.

Join Cole Haan and the co-founders and career gurus of Ladies Get Paid, Claire Wasserman and Ashley Louise, for an interactive workshop led by Claire. The event features a night of skill building and networking, plus cocktails and light bites. Meet new people, make authentic connections, and learn how to develop relationships for professional opportunities.

Key takeaways:

1. How to let go of imposter syndrome. 
2. How to understand and organize your network.
3. How to connect others - there's an etiquette!
4. How to find allies, mentors, and sponsors. 
5. How to build your personal board of advisors.

We'll also go over how to be more comfortable at networking events so we can turn strangers into friends.
