Toasting the women in the 2015 gen-xyb™ High Tea program

Last week we kicked off the 2015 gen-xyb™ High Tea program. An incredible group of women convened at Northern Trust’s Global Conference Center to mark the beginning of what is going to be a year of leadership development, discovery and advancement together. The program has grown over fifty percent in size from last year – indicative of the value that companies are seeing in the program. This year the group of participating women come from Northern Trust, BlueCross BlueShield Illinois, Citi Retail Services, BDO, A.T. Kearney, Slalom Consulting, CDW, BP, Arthur. J Gallagher & Co., centro, and The Warranty Group.

Bringing together pairs of women that span the different generations, the group meets on a monthly basis for intense and exciting working sessions where we dive deep into topics that have bearing on their professional development as leaders and their career advancement. In addition to the knowledge, insights and skills that the women add to their toolkit over the year, the networking opportunities and the relationships that they establish and build are crucial for their long term career success.
