Changing the Conversation: Webinar Event!
Join us for a thought-provoking webinar led by Cameron Hume, Vice President of Direct to Consumer Marketing at BlackRock, to discuss unique insights on the coming wave of wealth toward women and its impact across industries.
As part of CFW Careers’ ongoing Changing the Conversation series, Cameron will discuss the growing personal wealth of women in the United States, currently at $14 trillion and expected to sky rocket to $20 trillion by 2020.
Together, women have enormous economic power – Cameron will provide us with actionable strategies for women to harness this power and engage with their personal finances, so that they are prepared to take control of their money and better meet their financial goals.
Changing the Conversation: October 2017
Sponsors: How to Find and Manage this essential Relationship
This panel discussion will feature three women and their sponsors/champions/mentors, and will provide an intimate peek at their special relationships... how they found each other, the types of conversations they have, and the mutual benefits of their relationships. The event will be held on October 26th at the downtown space of our host ZocDoc. Keep an eye out for more details to come! In the meantime, check out our recap blog from April’s event.
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.
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
