This research project culminated with the final session in our Executive Roundtable Series, the State of Women in Business: Solutions to the Shecession, presented by Amazon on February 9, 2022. After so much time observing the dire effects of the pandemic and watching the data slide into 1980s-era outlooks, it was refreshing to hear actual, tangible solutions that businesses can put into practice immediately.
Please also see The Denver Post article, The Great Resignation Brought More Attention to the Gender Gap, about this important project.
We were inspired, invigorated, and motivated to share these findings and hear the conversations that were catalyzed.
Our panel of experts, comprised of executive leaders and small business owners, discussed everything from resources to support women-owned businesses to in-depth conversations about women who live in those various intersectional identities, including BIPOC women, LGBTQ+ women, new mothers, older workers, and allies.
This was all possible thanks to our generous sponsors: Amazon, Presenting Sponsor; FirstBank, Premier Access; HealthONE and Holder FCI, A Joint Venture, Sustaining Sponsors, and MSU Denver, Research Sponsor.
