The 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote was ratified 100 years ago. Yet a century later, women – and especially women of color – still have to fight to have a seat at the table in the upper echelons of the business community. Hear from three powerful women in the business world – Dr. Helene Gayle, President and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust; Monica Lozano, CEO of College Futures Foundation; and Sarah Zapp, Founder of Beyond Board – for a lively discussion about how they navigate one of the biggest remaining bastions of male privilege, the business community; how each has achieved success; how they deal with being one of the few women or only woman “in the room;” mentorship; strategies for starting out in the business world; and how to increase diversity in the business community. This is a must-see panel discussion.
Panelists: Dr. Helene Gayle, Monica Lozano Moderator: Sarah Zapp
