March 22, 2021

Event Cover

The YLAI Alumni Advisory Board is excited to invite you to an upcoming virtual event entitled “Challenging Gender Bias in Entrepreneurship“, presented in honor of YLAI4All and International Women’s Day. The event was inspired by the 2021 International Women’s Day theme, “I Choose to Challenge.”

The event will focus on the importance of women’s businesses around the world in an effort to eliminate gender bias in entrepreneurship. The program will break down stereotypes to show that women are strong, strategic business owners who deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. When women own their own businesses around the globe, we all move one step closer toward eliminating gender bias and inequality in the business world.

Please join us on Wednesday, March 24 from 11 – 2 pm EST, and Thursday, March 25 from 10 – 2 pm EST for this virtual Zoom event, which will feature speakers, panel discussions, and workshops.

The event will be held primarily in English, with simultaneous language interpretation and some workshops offered in Spanish and Portuguese.
