Integrating Interruptions Panel
The business world isn’t always as well-oiled as it may seem. Business-women can be faced with diverse challenges, experiences, and changes that require minor or major adjustments to their lives in order to continue along their path. Sometimes interruptions are self-imposed and sometimes they are completely out of one’s control. Today we have a panel of three incredible women willing to discuss their career and life “interruption” and the ways in which they navigated it. These women come from diverse backgrounds and experienced diverse interruptions, however, the common denominator is the impressive methods these women used to integrate challenges and experiences. Certain interruptions can include developing families, working through business school, and changing careers. Each woman dealt with her experiences in a certain way, which led to growth and new opportunities.
