Women's Leadership with ActivePure

A very special conversation in honor of Women's History Month. Our trailblazing keynote speakers, Deborah Birx M.D. and Amy Carenza, offer a wealth of guidance during this conversation from how mentorship actually translates to good business, advice for handling those inevitable tough days, and what they are hoping to see for female equality in the workplace as we look forward. Listen and share for all who need to hear.
