We're living in unprecedented times as we navigate COVID-19. If you're a woman in business and want to connect with other like-minded women join us tonight at 7 PM EST as we discuss "It's Not Business As Usual". Initially Sue Sutcliffe and I created this event to pre-launch our new venture #SheConnectsOnline and invited select women to join us. But after all that has happened in the last week, we felt it was too important a conversation to not open up to others. The event tonight is free, and there are a limited number seats still left. We'll be using a very unique networking platform which allows participants to connect virtually in a very meaningful and deep way. If you'd like to join us, reach out and we'll provide you the information to attend.
