FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hard Work, Performance Don’t Get Women Promoted
WITI Summit Panelist Interviewed on WomensRadio.com
REDWOOD CITY, CA – October 26, 2006. All the hard work and good performance won”t get a woman promoted if she doesn’t effectively package and promote herself, according to a recent interview on WomensRadio.com.
In the interview, Leverage2Market Associates President Linda Popky notes how important it is for women to take ownership for their careers, as well as for packaging and promoting themselves to employers, clients and other organizations.
“Women need to learn how to market themselves as if they were an actual product or service,” she said. “They need to show decision makers and influencers that they can solve an organization’s problems, by articulating their unique value in terms of business results.”
A featured panelist at the Women in Technology (WITI) Summit Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, CA, Popky will be speaking on October 31, 2006 on the topic “Participation Drives Innovation.”
“With the technology available today, there’s no reason why any organization can’t solicit active participation in the innovation process from customers, suppliers and employees on a global basis,” Popky said. She noted that women are well-positioned to leverage this trend, since they are generally good at seeking connections, as well as gathering and assembling diverse input.
