Diane Kaern has forged a successful career as a sales compensation and operations professional at many multinational corporations, including Hewlett-Packard. During her time at Hewlett-Packard, she was responsible for global sales compensation analytics and reporting and designed and implemented a streamlined global reporting process. In preparation for her career, Diane Kaern studied for her MBA at the University of Pittsburgh.

Recently, the University of Pittsburgh’s Katz School of Business hosted a panel of executive women in leadership discussing the challenges and opportunities for women in today’s business climate. One topic of focus was the importance of going beyond your comfort zone, maintaining what is known as “learning agility.” By learning new skills, embracing new challenges, and being willing to take chances, women in business can keep their careers moving steadily forward.

How women can support each other, whether through mentoring or advocating for more inclusive workplaces, was among other topics discussed by the panel. Audrey Murrell, PhD, moderated the panel, which was comprised of Dr. Angela Hardy Isaac, a professor of finance and economics; Jackie Johnson, the founder and CEO of Corazon, Inc.; and Kelley Skoloda, a partner and the director of global brand marketing practice at Ketchum.
