The story unfolds here...

Meet Lauren Zajac

Today’s woman grew up in an upper middle-class family where she was constantly exposed to business conversations. Even though she was a female, her dad and her engaged in a lot of father /son type activities. These moments made her believe that there were no limits as to what she could do as a woman. As she moved toward figuring out her future, her parents advised her to avoid pursuing technology-based careers as she would be competing with the smartest and the best. So, she pursued law and eventually became general counsel in what is deemed a male dominated space. Today, she serves as the chief legal officer for a technology based human resource company. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Lauren Zajac.

Meet Dr. Patti Fletcher

Today’s woman grew up in a household that often expected her to be perfect. She was to try her best and get results. As she grew into adulthood, she never learned to ask permission for what she wanted but instead she would just do things and go after what she desired. And she became a master at overcoming whatever situation she found herself in. As an adult she became fascinated with technology and came to realize it could change how work got done. So, she took her career in the direction of technology driven human resourcing. Today, as an author, career professional and champion for women, she works to lay the groundwork for global platforms which allow everyone to harness their talents and passions to make the change they want in the world. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Dr. Patti Fletcher.

Meet Adrienne Penta

Today’s woman grew up in a household of positive affirmations. She heard things like “you can always learn more” and “you can do anything you put your mind do.” She attended an all-girls school from 6th to 12th grade, and this experience coupled with her parent’s affirmation shaped her to be confident and not influenced by male counterparts. At college, she was encouraged by her father to become a doctor or a lawyer. She tried medicine but it didn’t fit. So, she became an attorney and eventually ended up at one of the largest private banks on Wall Street. It was here that she realized women were so under served in the financial space. So, she pioneered a new concept of estate planning for women centered around a woman’s values. Today she continues to walk a path to greatness as she boldly ventures into new roles that can impact others in the private banking arena. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Adrienne Penta.
