Invitation to the IERG Chicago Chapter 7th International Forum 

Women In International Leadership

  • What challenges are female leaders facing in today’s global business climate?
  • What are the opportunities?
  • How does a country or region’s culture impact a woman’s ability to lead a multi-national business?
  • What is the history of female corporate leadership?
  • What does the future hold, and what lessons and insights can seasoned executives give to the next generation of female leadership?

Join us for a lively panel discussion that will explore these questions with leaders who have been at the helm of operations! Our panel consists of executives that have led domestic and international operations, have first-hand experience overcoming challenges unique to women and have enabled them to succeed in all realms of business.

IERG Chicago Chapter’s Annual International Forums give local executives access to the insights and experience of experts in international business.

This year’s event, Women in International Leadership seeks to inform, encourage and inspire both current and future business leaders concerning the challenges and opportunities women face on the global stage, as well as to provide an accurate platform for on-going discussion between peers, mentors and students.
