Last Thursday, March 21, was the Women’s Leadership Network Event in Seattle. Sara Sanford, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Gender Equity Now (GEN), spoke to attendees about an equity maturity model that quantitatively defines what equity looks like and identifies cultural levers that can be adjusted to create systemic change. She was an outstanding speaker—100% of attendees would recommend this event to a colleague! You can view Sara Sanford’s TEDx Talk on improving gender parity through corporate accountability here.
Thank you to the PLUS Foundation and our Gold Sponsor for making this event a possibility. We hope to see you at the next Women’s Leadership Network event!
This past Thursday, January 24, a social at SPiN in Seattle brought members of the Northwest Chapter together for both business and fun. Attendees enjoyed networking, food, and drink between friendly rounds of ping pong. Thank you to the Northwest Chapter for organizing this event, and enjoy the photos!
The NW Chapter held its annual Chapter Charity activity at Eastside Baby Clinic on October 4, 2017. The group stuffed clothes into care bags for children and shared a grant from the PLUS Foundation for $6,000 with the organization.
