We will hear from Anant Yardi, President and Founder, and Kevin Yardi, Vice President, Client Services about the company’s formation, challenges and thoughts about the future.
Mountains of data have shown that the presence of women on founding teams or in the C-Suite is correlated with increased financial performance. Why are these companies thriving? What is unique about women’s approach to governing boards that leads to business growth? What can we learn to further support emerging women business leaders in our lives whether they be our co-workers, wives, sisters, daughters or ourselves? On April 19, we had another full house with a stellar panel of successful women that continued an interactive discussion through the evening filled with stories of motivation and tips for both women and men.
