On Sunday, January 26th we kicked off our 2014 meetup season in Philadelphia at Square 1682 (121 S. 17th Street). Our Business Girl Topic of the Day was "Sexism and the Female Entrepreneur" which sparked a great conversation over lunch with everyone sharing their experiences and coming up with solutions.
We also discussed Pantene's commercial from the Philippines that went viral receiving over 37 million views on YouTube, "Labels Against Women", that examines the double standards that exists in the workplace when it comes to professional women. Take a look.
Here's a question for you:
Do you believe being an entrepreneur keeps you from encountering the glass ceiling that can prevail in a male dominated corporate environment?
Thanks to everyone that braved the cold to join us:
Ernestine Johnson - CEO|, Syncrani LLC
Lisa Reed - Owner, Your Location Spa Destination
Toosdhi Perry - Independent Medicare Advantage Agent
Cheri Davis - Graphic Designer
Karima Renee - Owner/Stylist, Skinny Minority
Deja Cromartie - Publicist, Deluxe Publicity
Our next meetup will be in New York City in March 2014. More details will be available in the coming weeks.
