Green Hasson Janks recently hosted its latest Women’s Empowerment Speaker Series on the importance of taking action in the workplace. The session, titled “If There’s No Seat at the Table, Bring Your Own Chair’” was moderated by Green Hasson Janks Partner and Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Mari-Anne Kehler with guest speakers Sue Chen (Founder and CEO of NOVA Medical Products), Debra Langford (VP, Chief Strategy Officer at The Alliance at The USC Race and Equity Center) and Katie O’Reilly(Executive Director, Business and Program Development at the Milken Institute).

Each panelist shared their experience dealing with “not being invited to the table,” how they eventually overcame the challenge and built relationships with male and female allies, and the importance of women supporting each other as mentors, coaches and additional voices in the room.

Following the panel there was a Q&A led by GHJ Principal Anita Wu.
