Join the Women’s Leadership Institute at our LPGA luncheon as we explore what holds women back from social networks that allow people access to promotions, board positions, and executive jobs.

We will address how women become more socially connected to those with more influence and what role culture plays in males and females interacting in an organizational setting.

You’ll see that “play” is worth it!

With a keynote, panelists, and audience interaction, this discussion is not to be missed.
