August 25, 2020 @ 11:30AM — 12:45PM
Thrive @ Work (From Home) will be a virtual event this year. Originally planned for April 16 at the Westin in Jackson, the event will now take place in a “work from home” format – online on August 25, 2020. The safety and well-being of our supporters is our top priority, so we’re thrilled to still be able to offer this meaningful event virtually. In the wake of higher unemployment and economic fears about the ongoing outbreak, this conversation has never been more important. During the luncheon, a panel of business leaders will share their experiences, both successes and challenges, to foster discussion and learning.
2020 SPONSORS: THANK YOU!
We're looking forward to hearing from business leaders about positive workplace policies that are good for women – AND for employers – at this year’s Thrive @ Work (From Home) virtual fundraiser. This event packs a punch with substantive conversation about workplace trends and policies. Hear firsthand about the employee-centered policies being implemented to create some of Mississippi’s most quality jobs. Thrive @ Work is the perfect event to invite your clients, your colleagues, and other VIPs you want to impress. Plus – your participation serves as an investment in women and girls across our state.
Out of an abundance of caution and in light of the recent recommendations from the Mississippi State Department of Health about large gatherings of people - we will be holding Thrive @ Work [From Home] in a virtual format this year! The event will take place from 11:30am-12:4pm on August 25, 2020. We'll have interactive conversations with our expert panelists - and we'll be able to offer you even more access with our presenters with special breakout rooms during the event.
