Building a Business in Male-Dominated Sectors
Wednesday, May 26, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:20 PM
Please join the WNG when we meet with Jennifer Fondrevay, Founder and Chief Humanity Officer of Day 1 Ready™ M&A consultancy, who will discuss building a business in male-dominated sectors. Welcoming remarks by Christa Davis, chair of the WNG Women's Leadership Forum.
Being the first or only is never easy, especially as a female entrepreneur or leader growing a business in a largely male-dominated industry. Jennifer will lead us in an interactive discussion on how female executives and entrepreneurs can succeed in overcoming these unique challenges. From the discussion, you will walk away with insights and actionable solutions on:
• The worst thing you can do as a female in a male-dominated industry
• The three things female leaders or business owners need to do first
• How to help future female business leaders and owners
