Levene Speaker Series: Turning Adversity into Advantage

Featuring Laura Huang, Associate Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School

Tuesday, April 13
12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. CST
Remote via zoom

How do you find a competitive edge when the obstacles feel stacked against you? When people have written you off before even giving you a chance? Award-winning Harvard Business School professor Laura Huang shows us that success can be attained by cultivating our unique "edge"—that elusive quality that gives us an upper hand and attracts attention and support.

Success is rarely just about the quality of our ideas, credentials, and skills, or even the hard work we put into it, says Laura. Instead, it's about how well we can shape our strengths, flaws, and others' perceptions of us—turning them into assets that can't be ignored. No matter your specific set of challenges, or the predisposed biases standing in your way, in this groundbreaking talk Huang will show you how to transform set-backs into your own unique edge—and help you keep it sharp.
