Storytelling Series – How Women Can Succeed in Construction (Despite Having a “Female Brain”) with Valeria Alexander


In this talk, we explore the evolution of the gendered brain and the relationship between that and the structure of traditionally male-run enterprises. This funny, provocative talk takes an honest look at what women are doing to hold ourselves back, how we can adapt to get into positions of power, and how we can successfully compete on a playing field designed by men to reward their achievements.
