March 28th- Barriers & Bias Discussion (Online)


On Thursday, March 28th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM central, Live on Zoom, join us for a Lean IN Women of Color Barriers & Bias Discussion.


The Barriers and Bias Discussion is a peek into the new Lean In Women of Color Barriers and Bias initiative which confronts some of the barriers women of color are facing in the workplace. We will explore ways we can combat these challenges and techniques to get ahead.

The mission is to create a safe but powerful space for women of color. Our objective is to provide education, empowerment and to alleviate both unconscious and intentional bias that are preventing women of color from being at the very top of their industries.

You will receive a Google calendar invitation to join the conversation upon RSVPing.
