What You’ll Take Away: It’s an opportunity to learn from the best – serious wisdom, from seriously cool women, all designed to empower you and your organization’s success. Whether tackling the gender gap, disrupting an industry or starting a business, come out to be inspired, pursue what you love, and have some fun while you’re doing it.
Not only will our panel of women will share their advice and perspective on #thefutureisfemale, but they’ll also share candid stories about their fears, failures, the best advice they never took, and the lessons – and action to take from it – learned throughout their life/career/entrepreneurial journey
Why It Matters:
Women earn 82 cents to a man’s dollar; only 2.7% of startup founders getting capital are women, according to a Department of Labor Current Population Survey; only 34% of all web developers are women. We strive to empower women in local communities to reach high, achieve their goals, and make an impact on the world, so let’s be the changemakers to improve and eradicate those numbers.
