Join us for the fourth WIBLI Symposium lunch as we welcome women leaders from across the Puget Sound:

Keynote Speaker: Alisha Valavanis, President & General Manager, Seattle Storm

Dynamic Duo: Pushing Back Against the Mommy Penalty, Christy Johnson & Anna Steffeney
Workplace re-entry after raising a family is an issue that faces many women often in the prime of their careers. Working mothers encounter systematic disadvantages in pay and perceived competence, and may suffer a pay gap between non-mothers and mothers that is actually larger than the gap between men and women. Join experts, Christy Johnson and Anna Steffeney as we discuss solutions and best practices of tackling this equity issue.

Skill Building: Confident Communication with Jenn Morgan, Brand Management Expert and Co-Founder of Communications Firm, Radically Distinct
