 “Forget the ‘Ladies Who Lunch’,” says Colleen Sharen. “The art of networking is essential to discovering opportunities for new leadership positions, but it has been shown consistently to benefit men more than women.”

Sharen shares her insights to help women understand the nature of networks, different types of networking, how the structure of women’s networks differ from that of men’s networks, and how women use networks differently. You’ll learn the steps to more effectively network and discover your allies, helping you improve your leadership capacity and achieve more, no matter your position.

Colleen Sharen is currently an Associate Professor of Management and a Professor of Organizational Studies and Leadership at Brescia University College at Western University here in London. Previously, she taught for the Schulich School of Business, York University in Toronto. She holds a BA from Wilfrid Laurier University, and an MBA from Richard Ivey School of Business, Western University. Sharen teaches marketing, strategy and leadership at Brescia and conducts research in the area of leadership and effective teaching & learning.

Sharen led large cross-functional teams to achieve aggressive performance goals, ds a former senior management team member in large international companies, such as General Mills, Kraft and smaller start-ups such as Grocery Gateway.
