FT Women NY, in partnership with SYPartners, hosted “Design Your Future Self”, an interactive workshop, moderated by SYPartners’ managing creative director, Jessica Tillyer. The hands-on workshop focused on key topics such as getting unstuck, building adaptability and confidence at work, listening to your instincts, and female leadership.
Additionally, New York staff participated in a clothing drive for Dress for Success, an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence.
