Women and Wellbeing – Why Gender Equity Matters. A Call to Action – GW4W Accelerator Event – St. Louis, MO

October 3, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us at Washington University in St. Louis at the prestigious Brown School of Social Work, Brown Lounge for GW4W’s first accelerator event in St. Louis.  You will mingle with local business women, academics, students, alumni and community leaders for an engaging, inspiring and educational evening including some of GW4W’s senior leaders and founding members.

Women’s health, wealth, wellbeing and its impact on career performance are rarely addressed in the workplace. Worldwide, gender equity is going backwards. For women to thrive we have to do more than march, lean in and join affinity groups. It’s time to take real action.

Join us for this interactive program where we will share thoughts and insights along with networking, nibbles and drinks. We will discuss current issues around the gender gap for women at work and invite the audience to help us break down barriers and create actionable steps for change.

We invite you to come ready to address the question: What will it take to create a more gender-balanced workplace?

Appetizers and beverages will be served.
