McAteer-80RICHLAND, Wash. – Women’s increasing power and influence in the business world will be discussed by a panel of female employees of CH2M HILL at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, in the East Auditorium, Washington State University Tri-Cities, 2710 Crimson Way, Richland.

The free, public event is the last in a March series for Women’s History Month that concentrated on women in the typically male-dominated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Moderated by Monika Moo-Young, president of Moo-Young Consulting Inc., the panelists will discuss: networking, negotiation and bridging the gender gap; diversity and influence in the workplace; creating one’s own vision of leadership; and how women can navigate a path to success in male-dominated industries.

“Fostering a discussion focusing on empowering women and their roles in the workforce can only further underscore the hard work that has been done to recognize female leadership,” said Kate McAteer, assistant vice chancellor of academic affairs at WSU Tri-Cities.
