It an exclusive event geared toward executive women with a goal of providing attendees with takeaway actions on how to thrive on the way to, and at the executive level. In addition to the distinguished panelists and their advice, the event is an excellent networking opportunity for attendees. Attendees include women across all industries, ages, and occupations.
