How will today’s trends shape our lives in ten years? What do we envision for 2030? What actions can we take to create a more equitable future that we all want now? At this event, Rebecca Ryan, a trained economist and futurist, shares her perspectives with humor and engagement. Rebecca is a researcher and trend-tracker who envisions the possibilities for the year 2030. She teaches us to think like a futurist and encourages us to act boldly to make the world a better place.
We also celebrate our community “Futurists.” Our Event Sponsors have identified women who are working and leading to help create the future we all want now. Come honor these amazing leaders as we learn, get inspired, and commit to doing more to advance equity for women.
