System Failure: Why Women Are Opting Out

Mar 10, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

The current systems (yes, all of them) aren't built for – or are by – women. We’re here to change that. More women should be running the world. Why aren’t we, you ask? The lack of women in positions of power and influence has nothing to do with ability, ambition or aspiration. It has everything to do with access. So, we’re opting out. By disrupting existing industries and creating entirely new ecosystems across media, health, finance, tech and intersectional gender equity, these businesswomen are on a mission to achieve a true cultural and generational metamorphosis.
