5th Annual International Women’s Day Breakfast
The keynote speaker for the World Affairs Council of Atlanta’s annual International Women’s Day Breakfast will be Jill Ellis, the former coach of the U.S. women’s national soccer team (USWNT); she’s also the most winningest coach in all of U.S. soccer history. Since winning last summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup and years of domination in the sport, Ellis and the members of the USWNT have famously taken their fight for equal pay to the world stage. With topics such as gender wage gaps throughout the workforce and the lack of female coaches and other personnel within professional sports, the conversation will be a new, welcomed look into the ongoing discussion on gender equality.
7:30-10:30 a.m. March 6. $125. 5th Annual International Women’s Day Breakfast. Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead, 3300 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta. 404-413-7083, wacatlanta.org.
