Women Will Series Addresses Gender Equality

The Build Institute and Michigan Women’s Foundation will present the Women Will Series: Balancing Act from 6 to 8 p.m., May 26 at the Build Institute. It focuses on the issues that Detroit female entrepreneurs are facing and the solutions to address them. The panel includes Raquel Castaneda-Lopez, Detroit District 6 councilwoman; Danielle North, of Kidz Kingdom Child Care & Party Center; Portia Powell, of Chemical Bank; and Victoria Washington, of Detroit Dough.

This event specifically covers the concept of how female entrepreneurs are constantly having to balance their business with motherhood, family life, jobs, education, health, societal constructs and more—that men typically are not tasked with balancing.

Admission is free. Location: 1620 Michigan Ave., Ste. 120, Detroit.
