LMHQ Women's Breakfast: Women at Work: The Flexible Workplace

Date: 05/23/2017

Time: 8:30 AM
Where: LMHQ, 150 BROADWAY, NEW YORK NY

Join us at LMHQ for a conversation about how policies and workplace culture initiatives, like flexibility at work, are helping to advance women (and men) in their careers.

Our May Women’s Breakfast hosts workplace disruptors Georgene Huang, CEO and CoFounder of Fairygodboss, a career community of women who pay it forward and help each other, Katharine Zaleski, CoFounder and President at PowerToFly, a community connecting women to companies that care, and Jenny Galluzzo, CoFounder of The Second Shift, helping companies who embrace the evolving nature of work find talent to support their staff and strategy needs.

Moderated by LMHQ’s Director of Programs and Events, Tracy Candido, we’ll talk about facetime in the office versus employee results, and how valuing the quality of a professional’s work over their attendance can lead to a more diverse workforce, with better pay for women, helping to reduce the gender pay gap.

Meet women who have built businesses dedicated to helping women have more fulfilling and productive work lives and thrive in their careers.

Doors open at 8:30 AM for bagels and coffee and an opportunity for networking, and our panel kicks off at 9:00 AM sharp. We can’t wait to see you!

This event is sponsored by Verizon. 

 

Fairygodboss

At Fairygodboss, our mission is to help you create the best career for your life. We've helped over one million women do this by crowdsourcing hard-to-ask information about job flexibility, salaries, work-life balance, maternity leave policies and whether women are promoted and paid fairly in their companies and departments.

PowerToFly

PowerToFly is the community where women are changing the nature of work. We're doing this in three ways: matching women with companies building inclusive environments where they excel; reaching millions of women with information about why a company is committed to diversity; and finally, we're organizing online and offline programming across America to connect women to each other and executives at top brands. We’re proud to be working with companies invested in diversity and inclusion that range from fast-growing startups (Gitlab, Automatic, Buzzfeed) to Fortune 1000 companies (American Express, Viacom, Time Inc, Verizon).

The Second Shift

The Second Shift is a members-only network of rigorously vetted professional women who have worked for the top agencies and marketing organizations in the world. Our marketplace platform directly connects stakeholders with deployable on-demand talent for all their marketing and finance-related needs.
