Featured Breakout Session at Selected's 100th Annual Meeting

While once a male-dominated profession, funeral service is undergoing a transformation as increasing numbers of women enter the profession at all levels and in all roles. How do female funeral professionals integrate effectively? Motivational Comedian Karyn Ruth White believes it is our responsibility to teach the world how to treat us. This insightful and powerful "She-Note" will look at the core issues women hold around confidence and power in both their personal and professional lives. Issues such as verbal and visual power, self-image and "the sabotage habit" will be reviewed.
