Event description

Description

Join us for a conversation with Carol Evans, Founder and President Emeritus of Working Mother Media (WMM) and CEO of her own consulting firm, Carol Evans Enterprises. She'll be speaking about her experiences in the workplace both as a woman and mother and will touch upon how she is able to empower herself and all women around her.

She has been involved with the Working Mother magazine since 1978 when she played a pivotal role in launching a new magazine for a new market of young moms who wanted the joy of a family and the challenge of a career. Throughout the years, she has launched numerous key initiatives for women in the law, hourly workers, small business owners and top executive women and has helped corporations engage more deeply in the advancement of people of color, LGBTQ employees and people with disabilities. She has published a book, This Is How We Do It: The Working Mother’s Manifesto, where she helps working moms to find joy in their busy lives and urges companies to support them with best practices and policies. She now has left her position at WWM in 2015 to co-found Executive Women for Hillary (now EW4Her), a national organization that gets professional women out of their offices and into the political fray on behalf of progressive candidates.

Moderating this talk with be Provost Linda Bell.

Our Power Talks series features today’s leaders discussing provocative topics of the moment. Each talk is followed by an audience Q&A.
