Fortune Magazine editor lauds women's progress

One measure of women's progress in the corporate sphere is that women feel more at ease to be themselves.
One measure of women's progress in the corporate sphere is that women feel more at ease to be themselves.

Professional growth and on-the-job comfort do not co-exist, according to Pattie Sellers.

The editor-at-large of Fortune Magazine, Sellers offered this bit of wisdom in a wide-ranging morning keynote address at the IICF Women in Insurance Global Conference, being held in New York City June 12-14. The annual conference convenes more than 400 business executives from leading corporations, as well as educational leaders and subject matter experts.

"The once narrow band of acceptable behavior for a female CEO has widened," said Sellers. "But a woman who tries to put herself out there too strongly is taking risks. A key to success on the job is to be yourself--to be authentic."

Sellers added a woman's sense of power need not be limited to the authority she wields in the workplace.
