Lessons-learned on managing your career

Presented by Oxford Women's Leadership Alliance

Terri Duhon, Chair of the Board Morgan Stanley Investment Management EMEA, board member Morgan Stanley International and Rathbone Brothers plc

Duhon will talk about lessons-learned on how to manage your career as well as her experience of corporate behaviour. Career management is rarely taught but is so crucial to everyone’s success. She will give advice on how to make big career decisions and think about non-traditional and non-linear careers. She will also talk about how each of us can make a difference in our own careers and industries. The talk will include insights about the challenges that women and minorities face and how to tackle unconscious bias in the workplace.

An Associate Fellow at Saïd Business School, on the MIT Corporation Visiting Committee for the Math Department, a guest lecturer at the LSE and a keynote speaker on topics such as risk, culture, non-linear careers, non-traditional life paths and corporate social responsibility.

She has been on the board of CHAPS Co (the UK high value payment system), the board of Operation Smile UK and was a founding member of the Women’s Leadership Group for the Prince’s Trust.
