Women make up 51% of the population and 48% of the workforce, but only 36% of all managers are women. Because of inherent gender traits, many women climb their corporate ladders differently than men and, as a result, face unique career challenges. YWCA Women's Leadership Initiative workshops empower women to turn these challenges into career-building opportunities.


Location: YWCA Greater Cleveland, 4019 Prospect Avenue
Time: 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (doors open at 11:15 a.m. for registration and networking)
