It is more important now than ever to be a part of the conversation impacting women’s issues. Join the largest organization in Connecticut dedicated to women’s economic equity for an empowering discussion about the economic clout of women entrepreneurs, and have a chance to network with community leaders and other entrepreneurs from across the state. Last year, over 200 people attended! Highlighting Women-Owned Business Day will be a fireside chat with Kathy McShane, U.S. Small Business Association’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership; Patricia Russo, Executive Director, Women’s Campaign School at Yale and Susan Johnson, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at The Hartford. Fran Pastore, CEO of Women’s Business Development Council will moderate. The event will also pay tribute to the 30th anniversary of the passage of HR 50/50 - the landmark legislation that gave women the right to secure capital for commercial purposes in their own name without a male cosigner.
