Event Details:

Today’s business climate is slowly transitioning from being male-dominated to embracing equality. But despite there being steps in the right direction, women still face an uphill struggle in terms of proving themselves in male-dominated industries such as finance, trades, technology, law, and politics. Disproportionately male environments are fraught with challenges that include sexual harassment, limited access to opportunities, pay gaps, and more. Join us as our speakers share their stories, offer advice for navigating your career, discuss how women can support each other, and highlight the importance of women in male-dominated fields.
