Sen made a point to acknowledge those who life other women in the workforce. She said, “I consider myself a champion, because it is truly my goal to help other women obtain more easily what I had to struggle to get myself. But it’s important to remember too that it’s not just me, and it’s not just other women. There are helpers everywhere.” After her remarks, attendees enjoyed a networking session.
