Changing The Conversation: October 2017

Sponsors: How To Find And Manage This Essential Relationship

This panel discussion, moderated by Rabia de Lande Long, 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.

Women Building Wealth: Recap

As part of CFW Careers’ ongoing Changing the Conversation series, Cameron Hume, Vice President of Direct to Consumer Marketing at BlackRock, led a thought-provoking webinar discussing unique insights on the coming wave of wealth toward women and its impact across industries.Check out the full recap here!

Changing the Conversation is an event series co-founded by Cynnie King, Rachel Fagnant-Fassler and Maria Simon, and 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.

Mission Statement

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

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.
