IU Alumni Webinar Series: Pamela Ryckman

A movement has begun. In numbers never seen before, ambitious women are joining forces in every American city, forming dinner groups and networking circles —collaborating to achieve clout and success.

Why shouldn't more women back each other? Why shouldn't they be banding together and tipping the scales? These "new girls' networks" are alive and changing all the old rules about how business is done and power is allocated.

In this webinar, Pamela Ryckman explains that while each Stiletto Network is as unique as the women it convenes, these groups do have common characteristics. You'll hear how groups mine their collective wisdom to realize their dreams or champion a cause, and how they lift up their friends and push them forward, ensuring each woman gets what she needs —be it information, an introduction, a recommendation, a partnership, or a landmark deal.
