In celebration of Women’s History Month, we will be hosting an open and safe conversation about women in business.
According to a report by RBC, COVID-19 has set women back three decades in advancement in the workforce. What can we do to reverse this trend and keep women in leadership positions? What are their top barriers and struggles? What are strengths and opportunities that can support their growth?
Join us for this inclusive lunch hour conversation moderated by The Chamber’s Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Sanjana Vijayann.
