The Power of Women in the Workplace

Be a voice, not an echo. We’ve seen this quote attributed to Albert Einstein, but today Guadalupe Hirt said it, and we all heard it loud and clear! You just need to see the stats that our panelists mentioned in this session to make you want to raise your voice.

Women are reporting excruciatingly high rates of burnout; 50% of BIPOC women are considering leaving their roles in the next two years. There are currently 2.2 million fewer women in the workforce, but we are not ready to give in!

We are all rock stars! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Watch the replay here.
