March is Women’s History Month. What better way to celebrate the many contributions that women make to the economy and the community than to host a panel of female industry leaders to share their stories, perspectives and advice?

JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber have teamed up to bring you this the Prosper Jefferson Women in Leadership Panel. Join us Wednesday, March 31st, at 10:00 am to hear from three female leaders across a diverse range of industries and backgrounds to share their personal experiences in leadership roles, how they got there, and how they continue to grow their businesses and organizations.

Moderated by Gambel Communications CEO Amy Boyle Collins, this panel will offer frank discussions on work/life balance, the challenges women have faced in the workforce due to the COVID-19 pandemic, being a female leader in male-dominated industries, and so much more.
