Fireside Chat with Laura Huang: Turning Adversity into Advantage

Mar 24, 2021, 4:00 – 5:00 PM

About this event

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Asana joins forces with professor, author & thought leader, Laura Huang to explore how our paths to success can be a little easier. We all have biases working for and against us, says Laura, a star business professor and author of Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage. If we learn what these biases are, we can empower ourselves to create personal success.

Join Steph Hess, Asana’s Head of Corporate Marketing in a fireside chat with Laura as they explore: What is “edge”? In her groundbreaking research on edge—the elusive quality that gives us an upper-hand—Laura reveals that a large part of success relies on how well we can shape others’ perceptions of us. Laura and Steph will discuss and show us how we can leverage both our strengths and our flaws to our advantage—creating an edge that will keep attention, beat competition, and win.

You'll walk away with skills and information on:

  • Interpersonal relationships and implicit bias in entrepreneurship and in the workplace
  • How to leverage your strengths and flaws to your advantage
  • How we can empower each other and create a community that supports women in leadership
