The path to leadership roles is not well-understood by most. Promotion and hiring decisions are confidential, which makes it hard for observers to gain insight into what it took for someone to move up. Because the path is unclear, talented people may believe they cannot pursue a leadership role.

Early- and mid-career IT staff don’t often have the opportunity to discuss career progression with more senior leaders, or with leaders outside of their own organizations. Bias may play a role in determining who gets the information and mentoring needed to plan their careers.

This panel presentation will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear directly from senior IT leaders about their paths to leadership. Our panelists have diverse backgrounds (both organizationally and demographically) and have had unique experiences along their journeys. At the end of this panel presentation, attendees should leave with an understanding of what they can do position themselves to “move up”.
