At Genesis, we know that domestic violence is not a private issue and one in four women will be affected in her lifetime. In Corporate America, over 8 billion dollars are lost each year due to domestic abuse. The Genesis Lecture Series consists of four educational lunch presentations, focused on informing guests on timely topics while arming attendees with the knowledge needed to make a difference within their own companies, families and communities. Please join us for this year’s Lecture Series, A Century in the Making, as we celebrate the 19th Amendment Centennial, recognizing the women who have paved the way for equal rights throughout the last century.
