Join us for another working session on today's key issues impacting women. Come network, mingle and listen to a conversation with makers of tomorrow’s women’s history!

This builds on our first “Disrupting the Patriarchy” event at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s (sponsored by Ellevate Philadelphia and The Walnut Club) during Women’s History Month in March 2016. At the event we brought together some of the area’s most highly respected business professionals to discuss the advances women have made as industry leaders, and how to empower more women to join their ranks.

Part 2 - "Leveraging A Collective Voice" - will be an engaging working session with the goal of creating a working platform around key issues impacting women today and in the future including: health care, affordable child care, voting rights, pay parity and the role of the media in the coverage of the presidential campaign. We will bring a variety of experts and heavyweights to help leverage our economic and political strength.
