Women make up almost 52% of all professional jobs in the United States, yet only 14.6 percent of executive officers, 8.1% of top earners, and 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Although women have made significant progress in the business world, we are nowhere near having a true balance between men and women.
Business Today’s Women in Business Conference aims to provide female students from all backgrounds with the cost-free opportunity to attend a mentorship-focused conference that helps to develop an understanding of what challenges women face in the business world and how to overcome them.
The 2016 Women in Business Conference will take place in New York City on October 8th and 9th. Business Today will cover all student expenses, including airfare and meals.
