Ready to take your professional leadership to the next level?
Nationwide, women are fed up with the gender leadership gap and gender pay gap. The good news: we’re taking action to break the status quo and lift up all women until gender equity become reality.

We’ll kick off the evening with words of wisdom from a local leader, break into an intensive one-hour professional development workshop, and close out our evening networking with more than 50 young professional women over drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
