New York City, NY – Barriers That Are Holding Women Back Roundtable

March 30, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Please Join Us!

As we discuss Barriers That Are Holding Women Back: The Intersection Between Leadership, Caretaking and Financial Wellbeing.

We need a more systematic approach to gender equity that addresses the connection between these three components.

Despite the efforts of many organizations to help advance more women in leadership, the impact is not making enough of a difference. According to the World Economic Forum’s November 2, 2017 report, gender equity is going backwards, not forwards. We need a more systems thinking approach. We need targeted research to get to the underlying cultural DNA that is holding women back. We need more women in leadership and create actionable steps we can take, share lessons learned, and work better together with men to help the next generation of women lead both personally and professionally.

Please join us for a special event featuring our GW4W Founding Members and Board Members for an inspiring roundtable discussion, including:
