First Women’s Leadership Network Event in Minneapolis a Great Success

The first ever Women’s Leadership Event in Minneapolis was a huge success! Over 50 people registered for this event and were able to hear the experiences and insights of our dynamic panel of local women leaders.

When asked for feedback about the event, one attendee said, “I can’t say enough good things about this event. The venue was perfect, the speakers were fantastic, and the topics discussed were very relevant.” Others commented on how they were “very impressed with the moderator, and the quality of panelists” and admired how “all the speakers were very professional and honest with their experiences.”

Thank you to our speakers, Kristi Brownson, Linda Caruthers, and Lisa Lamm Bachman, and our moderator, Erin Singmaster, as well as the wonderful efforts of the Women’s Leadership Network Planning Committee and the North Central Steering Committee. This was an incredible event and we’re proud to be able to bring the Women’s Leadership Network to more and more people across the country.

Enjoy the photos and we hope to see you at a Women’s Leadership Network event soon!

Outstanding Women’s Leadership Network Event in Seattle

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!
