    Great strides have been made for women, or have they?
    • When male executives speak up, they receive 10% higher competence ratings;
    • When female executives speak up, their ratings from their peers are 14% lower;
    • Women account for fewer than 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs, under 15% of executive officers, and barely over 8% of top earners.
    Women and men are not 50:50 at every important table. What will change that? What is it that differentiates male success? How can we "Stand Together" to close that gap?

    Join us for a gathering of powerful and fun women professionals enjoying an evening of conversation, sharing thoughts, ideas, and friendship.
