Female Founders Speakers Series [SIV513] 

11/29/17: Season Two of the Female Founders Speaker Series kicked off last Wednesday at Hotel Vermont in Burlington with a panel of women leaders from Burton Snowboards. Donna Carpenter, CEO and co-owner, discussed what it took to build a global brand while also increasing the numbers of women in leadership positions at Burton from 10% to 45% over the span of 13 years. Her goal is to get that percentage over the halfway mark.

Community members and entrepreneurs filled the room and asked a variety of questions of the five women on the panel. Eva spoke to audience members and organizers about the importance of women-led businesses in Vermont and how these networking events help provide inspiration.

The series is presented by Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET) and Hotel Vermont and ticket sale proceeds go directly to Vermont Works for Women. The remaining events in the series will be held January 22nd and March 12th.

Music: Huma Huma, "Satin Sugar"

Rue Mevlana Instrumental, "Cherub" & Bounce Off Me"
