Across the U.S., full-time working women make about $0.77 for ever dollar made by men and in many industries they are not afforded the same opportunities. In book publishing, however, women hold positions of power at every level and seem to have the same opportunities as men. Still, it wasn't always that way and women face unique challenges in the workplace -- even if that workplace is a book publishing company. 
 
Join Digital Book World, Workman Publishing and the Association of American Publishers' Young to Publishing Group for an evening of discussion, networking and cocktails on June 18 at Workman headquarters to hear about opportunities, challenges and advice for women building their careers in publishing. 
 
A networking event with cocktails and light snacks will be followed by a panel discussion with some of the most successful and dynamic women in publishing today. The panel will be followed by questions from the audience and more networking. 
 
Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear candid thoughts on women in publishing. Space is EXTREMELY limited, so please register today.
