Global activism for women’s equality has gained national recognition due to movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp, but progress cannot stop.

The event featured an uplifting and empowering program that embodied the 2022 theme of #BreakTheBias.  During this event, leading executives spoke to business leaders about how they can engage in inclusive practices to foster diversity of thought and encourage all employees to have a voice.
