"Engaging, educational and empowering."

"The workshop was excellent. Without a doubt it is a 'must do' for young women in the early phase of their career. In fact for all women, regardless of what phase they are at. Thank you."

"[The participants] found it to be a unique and affirming experience... Many were surprised to discover how valuable it was to be in this stimulating and safe environment where women were free to talk about the challenges associated with their professions, and to hear from others as to how they are navigating this challenging and sometimes lonely landscape."
