The Future is Female: Challenges and Opportunities for Women Entrepreneurs in the 21st Century and beyond! @ William Blair | Chicago | Illinois | United States

Empowerment Evening hosted by William Blair & YWCA Metropolitan Chicago featuring a screening of the documentary “SHE STARTED IT” and panel discussion featuring several of Chicago’s dynamic women entrepreneurs.

Through intimate, action-driven storytelling, SHE STARTED IT explores the cultural roots of female underrepresentation in entrepreneurship—including pervasive self-doubt, fear of failure, and risk aversion among young women.

Panelists include:
Nicole Yeary, CEO and Founder, Ms. Tech Co. & WiSTEM Partner and Co-Facilitator, 1871
Tiffany Mikell, CEO, AerialSpaces & Managing Director, ZaMLabs, Inc.

The event will take place at William Blair’s brand new, state-of-the-art global headquarters at 150 N Riverside Plaza.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and movie treats served compliments of our host, William Blair.

We suggest a donation to YWCA Metropolitan Chicago at the time of registration to enable their continued support of entrepreneurs from Chicago’s south and west sides.
