Debbie Bates-Schrott Selected as Panelist for Virtual Women’s Roundtable Hosted by the Women’s MBA Association and GW Forté Fellows

This event provides GWSB students with an opportunity to meet accomplished women from a variety of business and industry backgrounds

Debbie Bates-Schrott, Founder and CEO of Beyond Definition, was selected as a panelist for a Virtual Women’s Roundtable hosted by the Women’s MBA Association and GW Forté Fellows. The event provides George Washington University School of Business students with an opportunity to learn from several accomplished women from diverse backgrounds and gain insight into how women can thrive in their chosen field.

“As a certified Women-Owned Business, I think it is important to share my experience and knowledge with other aspiring women business leaders to help them grow and accelerate towards their mission,” said Debbie Bates-Schrott. “I am honored to participate in this event as an alumni of George Washington University and hope participants walk away with an inspired outlook on what’s possible in their careers.”

As we prepare for the post-pandemic business world, it is a valuable time to discuss how fundamental women-led businesses are in gender equality and advancement. According to the Female Quotient, organizations that have at least 30% of women in leadership roles are 12x more likely to excel financially. Beyond Definition currently has five female directors, who have each played different foundational roles in the agency’s growth.

“Education and community are critical in creating a more balanced workplace. Whether you’re attending webinars and panel discussions or joining organizations like the Women’s MBA Association, having a network is invaluable,” concluded Bates-Schrott.

The event will be held on Thursday, March 25th from 6:30 – 8:30pm EST.
