Women and Business: Looking at the Glass Ceiling

Tuesday, April 7, 2015
Invitation Only
  6-8 pm DeVos Campus                                               

In the last decade, there has been a growing awareness that women bring enormous value to the workplace, and steps have been taken to get women in the door and at the table. But, has fairer representation translated into actual equality in the workplace? Taking note of the disheartening wage gap, gender bias, and at times, outright misogyny that women face in the business world can make the glass ceiling feel more like a glass cage. These are precisely the problems we will take on in our upcoming Women in the Workplace event. Prominent female leaders from the Grand Rapids business community will offer their stories, frustrations, and wisdom to an upcoming generation of women business leaders. We are pleased to have two speakers joining us for the evening: Shelley Padnos, VP and Owner, The Padnos Co., and Dean Diana Lawson of the Seidman College of Business 




The Director's Schedule:
Poster Presentation at the 4th annual "Medicine and Religion" conference in March, 2015 in Cambridge, MA.
