Addressing and doing something about economic opportunity for women is essential. The days of patiently waiting for equal pay, respect in the workplace, opportunity for entrepreneurship, portfolios of assets, and above-average retirement plans have passed. At the SBC, we will explore the topics women care about, such as mobility, marriage, parenthood, and more.
The global pandemic changed everything by threatening what was normal. Today, we reset with an opportunity for a new-normal that eliminates the barriers to full economic participation and the enjoyment of the rights women have been barred from exercising. Will it be easy? No, not likely. But, together we will raise issues, kick tires, discuss the obstacles and barriers, and identify and communicate what is important to move the needle in the direction that points to positive change.
