On the Gender Gap

Our final Athena Speaks series for the year was held on Tuesday, December 3rd at the Jefferson Educational Society. The discussion was led by keynote Sweetie Browne, Program Manager, Americas Sales Strategy & Planning, Cisco Systems, Inc. Sweetie was joined by panelists Geri-Lyn Hoffman - Quality Director, Dynamic Systems, LORD Corporation, Dr. Andrea Jeffress, MD FACOG - OB/GYN Associates of Erie and 2019 Athena Award Recipient, and Cathy von Birgelen, Executive Director, eMarketing Learning Center at Ben Franklin Technology Partners.

Sweetie and the panelists shared their own experiences on the gender gap, and gave the attendees food for thought about mentors and your tribe, networking with a purpose, finding your voice, and paying it forward. 

Thank you to all who attended as well as our speakers. And to the JES for hosting the Athena Speaks series. 

Stay tuned for what's coming through our partnership with Athena Erie in 2020!
