Women in Family Business

Women in Family Business

We kicked-off the evening with appetizers, cocktails and bocce, followed by a few rounds of speed networking (bring business cards!). After we made some acquaintances, sat down to eat, and heard from two aunt and niece duos about key milestones in their family business journey, including advantages and challenges of being a woman in family business. During dessert, we shared at our tables takeaways from the panel discussion and afterward, we refreshed our drinks and enjoyed a long goodbye!

Our annual Women's Event is always a great opportunity to connect with other women in our family business community. We hope can join us at one of our future gathering for an evening of conversation and togetherness!
