A few years back, while I was working as a financial advisor for a large wealth management company, I hosted a women's networking event at my office after work. I was excited to get a group of professional women together and talk about goal setting and how we could accomplish our career goals.

During the meeting, I needed to leave the conference room to get something, and I ran into a senior male advisor who was leaving for the night. He turned to me and asked, "What are you hosting a Tupperware party in there?" I laughed it off, and went about my business.
