What does power look like for a woman? Are there differences in how women leaders use power versus men? Is power a dirty word? Our all-star panel will share tips for being a leader as a woman, especially in traditionally male-dominated fields. Panel will include viewpoints from the worlds of entrepreneurship, corporate, nonprofit and politics.

Men are welcome and encouraged to attend this event, which is part of Women Entrepreneurship Week.
