 Atlanta’s Top Female Professionals weigh in on Women in the Workplace

PINK’s 10th Anniversary Fall Female Empowerment Event Brings Together Atlanta’s Top Female Executives
to Tackle Issues Affecting Today’s Working Women

ATLANTA (October 27, 2014) – Recently publicized corporate policies and comments from top U.S. executives have highlighted the issues and challenges women still face in today’s workplace. But how do some of the most powerful female professionals in Atlanta feel about these issues? What do they see as women’s greatest challenges and opportunities in today’s workplace? And how have they seen this landscape change (or not change) throughout their careers?

On November 10, guests at PINK’s 10th Anniversary Fall Female Empowerment Event will get a chance to find out. An impressive program features presentations and a panel of Atlanta’s top business leaders including:

  • Cheryl Bachelder, CEO, Popeyes
  • Lisa Borders, VP Global Community Affairs, The Coca-Cola Company and Chair, of The Coca-Cola Foundation
  • Kate Gutmann, SVP Worldwide Sales and Solutions, UPS
  • Erika James, Dean, Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business
  • Pamela Joseph, Vice Chair, U.S. Bancorp
  • Jan Singer, CEO, Spanx
  • Carol Tome’, CFO, The Home Depot

“When I started offering these events ten years ago, I never would have imagined that in 2014, the CEO of Microsoft would state that women shouldn’t ask for raises or that the gender pay gap would still be below 80 cents on the dollar,” said Cynthia Good, Little PINK Book founder and CEO. “While the accomplishments of the women featured on our panel are impressive illustrations of the advancements women have made in the workplace, there is still a long way to go here. I think attendees will greatly benefit from the experiences and insights of the amazing professionals participating in this year’s event.”

The annual lunch event, which offers networking opportunities- in addition to the groundbreaking discussion from presenters and panelists – will be held at the Buckhead Intercontinental Hotel and will raise funds to support the Eating Disorders Information Network (EDIN).
