Event Details

Are you a millennial who feels stressed to achieve more, in less time? Are you killing yourself to hit a “30 Under 30” list? Or do you feel like you are “past your prime” and don’t think it is worthwhile going after something new and exciting?

The Ellevate Chicago Chapter is honored to celebrate four incredible Chicago women who were recently nominated to the Forty Over 40 Women to Watch list. The Forty Over 40 annual list celebrates women who are upending the perception that 40 is past your prime. They are reinventing, leaning in, and creating momentum that is felt by those beyond their community and field of work.

Join us for a panel discussion with our Forty Over 40 nominees:
- Trish Gorman, PhD: Consultant; Professor; Author; Management Strategist
- Dr. Karen Eng: CEO/President of CSMI Engineering; President of Crush 2 Press, Inc
- Lisa Petrilli: COO and CEO, Rise & Rise Up Global Platform; Author; CEO, C-Level Strategies Inc.
- Debbie Halvorson: Former Representative for the 11th Congressional District of Illinois and the first woman to serve as Illinois Senate Majority Leader; Author; President, American Eagle Logistics

Each of these remarkable women will discuss their career trajectories in fields as diverse as management consulting, teaching, government, engineering, wine branding, and writing, and how they discovered that 40 was the mere beginning of their prime.
