About the event

A Salon is a place where interesting people can gather to talk about their diverse perspectives on important topics that shape our world. We are continuing the conversations about how to make work work for today's workforce. The December Salon features the insights and talents of Lashandra Baker (she/her/hers). If you're her friend, she insists you call her La. And once you meet La, you will want to be her friend forever!

La will present her speech she prepared, titled "ENGAGE: Everyone Needs Guidance And Grace Everyday!" she originally presented at the 9x9 Speaker Showcase in September. La's remarks are deeply connected to Humanity, which is one of the key findings from the Women and Work project.
