Cocktails & Conversations: ‘That’s What She Said’ with Joanne Lipman

February 12, 2018

In this hot-button era of sexual assault allegations and #MeToo support, women’s voices are ringing loud and clear. Men are listening, but what should they be saying—and doing?

In her new book out this week, That’s What She Said, What Men Need to Know (and Women Need to Tell Them) About Working Together, Joanne Lipman, former USA Today Editor in Chief and Chief Content Officer of Gannett reveals how men can join with women to close the gender gap and create dynamic work environments that benefit us all.

Join us for an illuminating and engaging evening with Lipman, a former Matrix Winner, as she leads us in conversation during an interview with Betsy Morgan about the topic on the minds of all women and now, most men. Lipman will share stories of her own journey through male-dominated newsrooms and board rooms as well as her strategy for achieving true gender parity at work.
