Changing The Conversation 2017: Advancing Women in Business
Changing the Conversation is an event series sponsored by CFW Careers in collaboration with our team of committed volunteers and advocates.
Having been committed to advancing women in business since our founding 43 years ago, we find it all the more critically important today to take on continued inequality in pay and representation in the workforce. Changing the Conversation 2017 will be devoted to Advancing Women in Business through programming that moves from identifying the issues, which have been so well documented, to What can we do about it? both in terms of our own careers and corporate and government policy-making. Our belief is that by advancing women toward corporate leadership, we can help all women across the socioeconomic spectrum.
The mission of Changing the Conversation is to positively impact gender equality within the business sector, seeking equal representation of women in the workforce and in leadership.
This mission is fueled by
- An interactive event series connecting women executives to peers to create a network committed to advancing female leadership
- Advocacy in the private and public sectors for policies that support the prominence and permanence of women in the workforce
- Professional guidance and career development for women in business, including job placement, transition coaching, and mentoring
Tickets available through Eventbrite. Follow our LinkedIn Group to stay up to date on the event details and if you can't make it on April 20th, please follow CFW Careers Facebook page for the Live Event!

Why More Women in Leadership is Good for Business (and Good for Us All)
CFW Careers' events and other initiatives for women are inspired by the ideals of our founder, David King, who has been an ardent champion for women in sales leadership for over 40 years. We strive to give voice to women in business, advance their careers, and contribute to the conversation about gender equality in the workplace.
