Town Hall: A Woman Among Men-y (Philadelphia)

  • Eastern Standard 1218 Chestnut Street, 4th Floor Philadelphia, PA 19107 United States (map)

Join Ladies Get Paid: Philadelphia for our third town hall where we'll speak with women who have excelled and gotten paid in traditionally male-dominated fields. From journalism, to architecture, to law, we'll hear about how they navigate their careers in a lady-light environment.

At each town hall we ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room and encourage everyone to share or ask something.

Thank you to Eastern Standard for generously hosting us in their offices, Tiger for donating beer, and Honeygrow for providing salads!

Speakers will include:
