As a woman in business, Marta Perez knows the importance of networking. But she finds too often that women fail to capitalize on their professional opportunities.
Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, founder of the Chautauqua Professional Women’s Network, will return today at 1 p.m. to the Chautauqua Women’s Clubhouse living room to discuss “Gender Balancing the Business World: What Is Taking So Long?”
The focus of her presentation is the controversial debate between Princeton professor Anne-Marie Slaughter and Facebook COO and board member Sheryl Sandberg about work-life balance issues for working wives and mothers.
Wittenberg-Cox organized and developed the Network during the 2009 Season, focusing much of her energy on the project. The presentations have evolved into a popular venue. The informal lectures are an opportunity for Chautauqua women to share their professional expertise.
