Time: 6:30pm
Where: LMHQ, 150 Broadway, 20th Floor, New York NY

Ever had to edit your emails for “sorries”? Felt the need to smile or soften your language when asking for a raise? You’re not alone; you’re facing the likeability trap.
 
Join Alicia Menedez, award-winning multimedia journalist and author of The Likeability Trap, in conversation with Jessica Bennet, Gender Editor at the New York Times and author of the Feminist Fight Club about why likeability holds so many women back from stepping out into positions of leadership and power. The conversation will explore the factors that influence likeability and encourage women to reject an outdated image of leadership instead of reinventing themselves.
 
Doors open at 6:30pm, refreshments will be provided.
