Spend a night networking and hearing from a diverse panel of women about how they became their own boss. We'll talk about their experiences and advice on...
Discovering their passion
Gathering the courage to strike it out on your own
Running a business while balancing life
At each town hall we ask our local panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room and encourage everyone to share or ask something. The goal is for you to leave knowing more than when you first sat down and meet like-minded women along the way.
