Boston magazine and Get Konnected! have joined forces to develop a professional women’s event drawing on the experience of business leaders to mentor Boston’s next generation in an educational, inclusive and fun environment.
This first-of-its-kind event is for people looking to network with peers and mentors, gain strategies to fight the challenges of gender inequity, and learn from women at the forefront of change in their businesses and communities.
This full day of programming will cover the topics of Financial Literacy, Leveraging Your Network, Small Business Growth, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Fashion, Sustainability, and more! We encourage women in all stages of their career and anyone who supports the advancement of women to join us.
This program will be entirely virtual and can be attended from the comfort of your own home.
