This month's invited speaker to the GradSWE Ladies Luncheon was Analisa Balares, CEO and founder of Womensphere (www.womensphere.org), a unique leadership community and global social enterprise that brings together people, networks, companies, and institutions for the shared purpose of unleashing women's potential. Analisa discussed her background and establishing Womensphere, as well as, the current status of gender equity in the work place and what our role as women leaders should be.
After sharing her story and her interest in promoting women in the workplace and in society by educating and informing them she took questions from the audience. She also engaged the audience with questions of her own like what they thought as young women in engineering about the concept of a gender bias and how to overcome it.
