#girlbossyeg 2018 – March 8, 2018
Mark the date in your calendars! interVivos is celebrating International Women’s Day by bringing back our signature event, #girlbossyeg on Thursday, March 8, 2018!
Patrick Brown, Kent Hehr, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Al Franken. By now, we all know they have something in common — they have each been accused of inappropriate sexual behaviour. This trend is so prevalent that it has been immortalized as a hashtag #MeToo and #TimesUp, which spread virally to denounce sexual assault and harassment. What does this movement mean for those of us in the non-political and non-Hollywood world? What does the movement mean for both professional women and men? What are some strategies and tools we have access to help advance the movement? We will discuss these questions and more at the upcoming #girlbossyeg.
More details to be released on our social media channels in the upcoming weeks!
