Expanding the wisdom, visibility, and influence of women in business

September Breakfast

“Let's Get Real About Support for Women”
Featuring Susie Lee, Former CEO of Siren, Entrepreneur, Artist, Educator and Scientist

susieleeSusie Lee is the ultimate Renaissance woman: acclaimed visual artist; tech entrepreneur who co-founded and led Siren, an award-winning online dating company; and researcher and teacher in the physical sciences. She boldly embraces a life that celebrates her artistic talents as well as her entrepreneurial spirit, and leverages her creativity to reinvent herself. In all of her roles, and especially in her recent experience in the tech world, Susie has listened to the talk about opportunities for women, yet has seen a different reality where female entrepreneurs still encounter roadblocks and damaging stereotypes that continue to hold them back.

Join us for breakfast as Susie talks about entrepreneurship and gets us thinking about what we each bring forward. She will elaborate on tools to:

• Be better sponsors and allies for each other
• Address “toxic masculinity” and curb it
• Open a conversation with men and women to address meaningful ways to change the status quo
