The Evolution of Heart, Empowerment and Legacy
Please join us to discuss the parallel growth between the evolution of heart disease and women's empowerment.
As women entered the workforce in the early 80's, there was a gradual increase in heart disease in women -- an increase today which today causes 1 in 3 women to die of this deadly disease. While there are many factors that contributed to this increase, the correlation between empowerment and lack of awareness of this health issue cannot be ignored.
The Forum is meant to spark conversation around how senior level executive women can be better equipped to leave a legacy that will ensure that their successors live longer and healthier lives.
This Leadership Forum complements the Go Red For Women Symposium scheduled for May 2015. Leaders who attend this Forum are encouraged to invite their mentees and staff to attend the Symposium and work towards creating their own legacies in support of Go Red For Women's mission.
