<b>Lean On: Why we need to be leaning on companies to embrace gender equality and women’s empowerment</b>
Join us for an interactive Power Circle breakfast with Joe Keefe, on why we all need to be “Leaning On.” Gender diversity and women’s empowerment can have profound impact in advancing economies, communities and investment portfolios. How can we as individuals and as investors lean on companies to advance women into senior leadership roles and onto corporate boards? Come hear Joe’s perspective on how ordinary individuals and investors can become part of the solution in advancing gender equality.
<b>THIS EVENT IS RESERVED FOR POWER CIRCLE MEMBERS OF 85 BROADS.</b>
