Feeling stuck? Undervalued and underpaid?

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.
