Oct 26, 2011, 10:22 ET from Womenetics

ATLANTA, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 10, 2011, compelling global thought leaders will convene with leading Chicago female executives to explore ways to advance women worldwide and ensure the U.S. stays economically competitive. The international media company, Womenetics, will host the Global Women's Initiative: The Ripple Effect, a half-day conference in Chicago to discuss trends, innovation, challenges and promising cross-sector solutions surrounding women's leadership, corporate social responsibility, and worldwide economic and political empowerment of women.

According to UN Women, women perform 66 percent of the world's work, produce 50 percent of the food, but only earn 10 percent of the income and own 1 percent of the property. Primary female leaders in Chicago's corporate community will provide insights into what companies can and are doing to advance women and enhance business success. Internationally recognized speakers in corporate, not-for-profit, academic and public policy arenas will deliver powerful messages addressing the global status of women, including U.S. efforts to impact the well-being of women domestically and internationally, and public and private initiatives underway to help women control their destinies.

"Womenetics believes women hold the key to the future: women's leadership will positively alter conditions and their ability to reach and inspire will effect change," says Elisabeth Marchant, president and CEO. "The Global Women's Initiative will enable cutting edge leaders, companies and executive women to amplify their trusted networks, build influence around issues that matter and enhance their ability to generate business success in today's international economy."

The Global Women's Initiative: The Ripple Effect will take place on Thursday, November 10 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Chicago, IL. For more information or to register, visit
