The Woman’s Club of Palo Alto – 2nd Landmark Leaders Speaker Series

February 4, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Woman’s Club of Palo Alto presents the 2nd Landmark Leaders Speaker Series

Dear Woman’s Club member:

Critical questions of our times persist: Are women left out when important decisions are made in our world? Do they pay a penalty for success? Do women really have the skills and abilities to do the same work as men? Is it possible to have both a satisfying career and a family?  We now have well-researched evidence to answer these questions, and more.

We’re excited to let you know about the upcoming Tuesday, February 4 program at the Woman’s Club (475 Homer Avenue, Palo Alto), 7:30-9:00 p.m.:

Learning, Leaning, and Changing: Women and Workfeaturing:
