The Power of Friendship: How Female Bonds Amplify Female Leadership

Mar 15, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Our friendships shape more than our social lives. Scientific research shows that the number and quality of the friendships we have has a significant influence on our health, our happiness, and our success. Underclub and genEquality joined forces to launch (Be)Friend, a creative initiative that brings together leaders across business, politics, tech, and the arts to celebrate the power and impact of female friendships. Join us for a discussion about friendship, finding strength through vulnerability, and the ways that women can empower each other to achieve success.
