Stop Being Indispensable


Thursday, June 23

10:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST


Sarah Bettman

Founder & Principal Consultant

Bettman Consulting Group


Have you heard any of these phrases: “It would take three people to replace you” or “I can’t imagine how we could do this without you” or “You’re indispensable”? If so, you could be at risk of being blocked in your career. For many women, those phrases feel like compliments; we keep our head down, we work hard, we take on more, and we wait to get tapped for that next promotion and these phrases feel like acknowledgement of our good work. Unfortunately, once you become indispensable you’ve made it hard for your manager or team to help you move on and achieve your highest potential. 


  • What it means to be indispensable and the potential consequences
  • The impact on us when we work this way
  • Actions to keep our career on track 


Who Should Attend: 

  • ALL
  • HR Professionals
  • Working Mothers
  • Industry Professionals
  • University & Student Members

Sarah is a coach at heart and is passionate about supporting mindset shifts and behavior changes with her clients. She applies coaching, facilitation, and consulting experiences as one of many voices in the conversation about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Her focus is on the period of time when her clients know they want to do something different, but don’t know how. 

She spends a lot of time thinking about her role in the DEI space. She has found that sharing her journey of learning about bias, privilege, racism, and ultimately, striving to be better, helps to bring others along on their own journey towards being inclusive leaders and creating inclusive cultures. By focusing on a specific period of time in the change cycle, she sees an opportunity to promote continued learning by connecting her clients to others as they continue down the path of inclusion and equity. 

Contributions and impact:

  • Developing a women’s leadership development program for a large technology firm that boasted 30% return on investment due to increased retention and promotions into executive roles
  • Pitching and then building the foundation for DEI using a non-traditional approach at Constellation Brands, where representation for women and People of Color has improved at key levels and the voices of the employees have been elevated through the founding of ten business resource groups.
  • Being recognized for my contributions to DEI in the wine and spirits space with a nomination for Social Visionary of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine

She believes this humbling and challenging work, but there is nothing better than when her phone rings and the leader on the other side says, “I have a question.” She knows at that moment, a door has been opened and she has the opportunity to make a difference... and that is everything to her.
