Women & Money Town Hall

Women & Money Town Hall

We're honored to the first Women & Money Town Hall in Grand Rapids, hosted by Ladies Get Paid a national movement to empower women to create an open dialogue about money. 

Money is power. It's self-worth. It's value. It's also really uncomfortable to talk about. Come join us as Emily Richett and other local women panelists share their work war stories and strategize on how we can better advocate for ourselves and each other.  

The event ends with an open discussion and everyone is encouraged to share.

Panelists Include: 

Consider this: 60% today's college graduates are women but less than 24% make it past middle management. Only 4% become CEOs for Fortune 500 companies. Black female entrepreneurs generate $44 billion a year in revenue. 2% receive VC funding. If you look at the decision makers in every industry, it's nowhere close to parity. 

Grab your ticket and we'll see you there!
