January 22, 2019 “Breaking Barriers”
This Boss Talk will host a panel of women who have broken barriers, both professionally and personally and continue to do so every day! Discussions will focus on obstacles women face in 2019 — some created by external forces, while others may be barriers we are putting up ourselves! Our panelists will offer insight and provoke discussions about how our community of #BossLadies can face these challenges and “break barriers” as we all pursue our best boss life!
Time and Location
Our next Boss Talk will be held on Tuesday, January 22 at Ology Brewing Co. (118 E. 6th Ave.). Join the discussion, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Once again we’ve partnered with some great businesses and sponsors including: wine provided by Farmers Daughter Vineyards, beer provided by Ology Brewing Co., refreshments, and hors-d’oeuvres provided by Social Catering!
Complimentary parking is available directly across from Ology on 6th Ave., as well as street parking on Monroe. Please do not park in the lot adjacent to Ology to avoid being towed.
