Friday, October 14, 2022


11:00–11:30 am ET

Fireside Chat: Women Championing Women

What can we collectively do to further the power of women? Women are strong and resilient and know how to get things done. Our inherent abilities make us the perfect advocate for other women. But sometimes, we fail to step in or speak up when the moment comes. Let’s be brave. Women can be powerful allies at work (and school) for other women. As a future business leader, it’s important to explore the steps that you can take to change the balance of power in the workplace. Learn how to champion the successes of women and amplify their voices during this intimate conversation. 


Speakers present hot topics in under 15 minutes. Each session features two 15 minute talks followed by small group discussion. Topics are subject to change.

11:30–12:15 pm ET

Businesses have experienced rapid change over the last few years as they seek to adapt to unprecedented challenges.
