About this event

Traditional gender roles, society’s expectations and internalized sexism can pose serious threats to the successful integration of women in the workplace. Thankfully, modern-day career women are breaking these boundaries and redefining what it means to be a woman. Join us, March 6th, as we meet two of these wonderful ladies. They will share with us tips on how to balance work and personal life, how to stay true to yourself throughout your career and much more.
