Women Making Waves
This year will be the 3rd Annual Women Making Waves Brunch and Panel Discussion. This year’s keynote address will be from Lori Gold Patterson. Lori is a dynamic, successful entrepreneur in a male-dominated field. She will share with us what drives her, her path to success, and how she’s using her position to help more women climb the ladder.
Right now women account for only 19% of Congress but are 51% of the population. Let’s change this.
