On December 14, Bank of America proudly joined business leaders and entrepreneurs in Boston for the 19th annual Massachusetts Conference for Women, a day of inspirational keynote presentations, skill-building breakout sessions and networking with women business leaders across the greater Boston area. Bank of America served as the “Champions for Women” sponsor of the event.
The Massachusetts conference is part of the Conference for Women network, the largest association of women's professional conferences in the country. For nearly two decades, this event has provided networking, insights and skill-building opportunities for professional and personal growth to thousands of women. The conference brings together women leaders across areas including executive leadership, entrepreneurship, personal finance and workplace management. More than 15,000 attendees gathered to experience dozens of keynotes, workshops and seminars on issues impacting women business owners.
To kick off the day, Bank of America hosted a breakfast where Miceal Chamberlain, President Bank of America Massachusetts, welcomed guests and introduced Rachel Cossar, Co-Founder and CEO of Virtual Sapiens. Rachel took the stage to talk about her experience in pivoting from a career in ballet to fundraising and eventually opening her own business. Next, Carol Lee Mitchell, Head of Small Business Strategy and Specialty Lending, conducted a fireside chat with Anna Zhou, Economist with Bank of America on the current state of the U.S. economy.
