Why do you collaborate with Edge?

Ivy Algazy, CEO The Ivy Network, LLC

With a successful conference under our belts, it is clearer than ever that the Collaborate with Edge Leadership Conference was vital to women’s leadership and timely. With almost 300 attendees, we definitely started to move the needle closer to women’s leadership parity.  Women and men joined together in collaboration to shift the paradigm and start the change.
As guest speaker, New York State Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul said to the audience “It all starts right here, with women stepping forward to help each other” and that is exactly what we all did. We truly showed what collaboration brings to the table.

Will you share that table with us next June 19, 2019? Contact me and I will let you know how you can Collaborate with Edge!  - Ivy Algazy
