PWCC: Know Your Worth

Some of the biggest obstacles we face as businesswomen come down to knowing our own value. We know we have a personal brand but don’t know how to promote it. We have had amazing successes but feel like we are bragging when we talk about them. We know we deserve the raise or should increase our service fees but aren’t confident in asking. Here is the simple truth – you’re worth the money and everyone deserves to know. Join the Professional Women’s Club of Chicago for a discussion with a panel of experts. Get insights, tips, and tools about personal brand, self-promotion and yes, money. EvolveHer Studios, 358 W. Ontario, Chicago. Tuesday, May 14, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm.

Executives’ Club of Chicago: From Farm to Fork to the Future

The world’s population is set to grow to 10 billion people by 2050, which increases the likelihood of a massive food shortage. With American populations increasingly moving to urban areas, feeding Americans by bridging the urban-rural divide is an urgently important issue.

Ford will share the experiences of her 30-year career spanning energy at Mobil, food and beverage at PepsiCo, and publishing at Scholastic, culminating at this point, where she is at the helm of solving one of society’s most pressing issues: how will we feed the future?
