Joanne Lipman Authors Group Luncheon @ Union League Club of Chicago | Chicago | Illinois | United States

When Joanne Lipman wrote the article ‘Women at Work: A Guide for Men’ for Wall Street Journal, it immediately went viral. As she began speaking on the topic and continued to delve into the science, Lipman realized that there was an awful lot to say to men about women at work.

Packed with fascinating and entertaining examples That’s What She Said is a rallying cry, for both men and women to finally take real steps towards closing the gender gap at work. Please join YWCA Metropolitan for an engaging and inspiring luncheon hosted at the Union League Club of Chicago.
