The journey to becoming a successful business owner is not an easy one. On November 2, join us as we explore the journeys that four women took to becoming successful businesswomen and take a deeper look into lessons learned and advice they have for budding female entrepreneurs. 

Specifically, the panel will discuss: 

  • How to identify and approach mentors and/or advocates out of the "old boys" network. 
  • What to do about woman-centric issues such as maternity leave and family-care.
  • Different sides of entrepreneurship such as corporate vs. agency.

Attendees will leave with specific and actionable next steps to take in their own individual journey.
