The final session of the series will culminate with an in-depth review of lessons learned and a proposal for solutions at the State of Women in Business Summit.

The Data Deep Dive, an analysis of relevant trends and themes that have gained prominence throughout the discussions, will be presented by MSU Denver President Janine Davidson, Ph.D., and Annie Butler, Ph.D., chair and professor, MSU Denver Human Services and Counseling.
