Madison Women's Leadership Luncheon
You are invited to the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Madison Women's Leadership Luncheon. Our keynote speakers are Jackie and Cyndi Richter of Heels and Hardhats Contracting.
Heels and Hardhats Contracting was built on a dream of equality for women in the trades by Jackie and Cyndi Richter. The company was formed in 2010 when Jackie, a general manager of a construction company, suddenly couldn’t find work. Jackie had undergone gender correction and believes the lack of work was due to her unique diversity. Cyndi grew up with her family in the bricklayers union. From growing up in a union home, Cyndi has always felt passionate about the work that the union can provide. With this new employment obstacle being faced, Jackie and her partner Cyndi formed Heels & Hardhats.
It is their mission to train, promote, and utilize women in the construction trades. Their firm employs a diverse workforce of people who are multi-talented and trained in many aspects of construction. They summarize their leadership in two simple words: “Follow Us." Leading by example and encouraging a team environment allows the firm to accomplish its work with dedication and pride.
This event will feature networking from 11:30 a.m. to noon, followed by lunch, and then the keynote and dialogue.
Lunch will be catered by the Goodman Community Center's in-house catering company - Working Class Catering. They're named "Working Class Catering" because it's a classroom of sorts - teens are integrated in all parts of the business, learning all aspects of running a full service catering company through the Goodman Center's Teen Education and Employment Network program. Meals are of the highest quality, and are made from scratch using the best local and organic ingredients.
As such, by attending the Women's Leadership Luncheon, not only will you be supporting the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce and celebrating women in our community, you will be supporting the Goodman Community Center and empowering local teens in education and employment. It's a win/win! We hope to see you there!
