International Women’s Day Lunch

The Chamber’s International Women’s Day Lunch on Friday, March 6, focusing on the theme Each for Equal, will gather a panel of leading executives to speak to business leaders on how they can engage in inclusive practices to foster diversity of thought and encourage all employees to have a voice.

Three distinguished woman leaders will share their “Each for Equal” story in a short TEDx style keynote. Christy McDonald, anchor at Detroit Public Television, will then lead a group discussion inspiring attendees to model “Each for Equal” behavior.

An equal world is an enabled world, and collectively each of us can help to create it.
