As women in business, we have come so far; but as this event recognizes there is still work to be done. Women still hold only 17% of CEO positions and women-owned businesses still face growth hurdles.
Join us September 25th for the CWCC 3rd AnnualState of Women in Business Luncheon to explore the data and dig even deeper with prominent thought-leaders who will speak to big-picture issues.
