[Past Event] Why the Time Is Now for Women
Since the pandemic began, hundreds of thousands of women have left the workforce. This “She-cession” would seem to have set women back in a time when pushing forward is needed most. So how do we as leaders make actual change to push gender equality forward? Join Worth for the final session of the year to discuss how we can rebuild after 2020 and how we can lead the charge to walk the walk as well as talk the talk when it comes to empowering women and minorities to affect real change. As the last installment of The Next Normal in 2020, join us and our special guests for this impactful and important conversation and enjoy it over a drink.
