Women Employed Hosts 41st Luncheon

On May 21st, 2014, 1,000 of Chicago's business, community, education, and political leaders gathered at Women Employed's signature gala event to strengthen partnerships, celebrate milestones, and renew commitments to expanding opportunities for working women. Thanks to everyone who came out and made the luncheon such a success!

Hear keynote speaker Zeynep Ton talk about how offering good jobs, offering low prices, and making good money all at the same time is possible for retailers:
