Join us for In the Ladies Room, a series of our Women Lead Online Forums. On today’s forum, your host Pattie Vargas has a conversation with her Featured Guests Eileen Steres-Gaffen, Owner and President of Steres Gaffen Media, Crys Noell, President of Thornton & Thornton LLC, Felicia Lyon, CEO and Executive Leadership Advisor of Lyon Performance Solutions, Jill Carpenter, Vice President of Marketing with Cirrus Insight and Linda Patten, Leadership Trainer of Dare2Lead With Linda. Our Featured Guests speak to how there is inequity in how we view men, women, and likability. Women are defined based on whether they please the people. “When women are successful in male-dominated fields, they are deemed less likable,” says Sarah Sobieraj, of Tufts University.
