Female Founders Dinner Celebrates Women in Retail

Recently Coresight Research held its first Female Founders Dinner in New York, a unique event that facilitates connections with female executives and entrepreneurs in retail.

As an organization that champions female talent within our clients’ organizations and in the technology and MDM space, EnterWorks was honored to provide lead sponsorship for the event.

EnterWorks CEO Rick Chavie had the opportunity to speak at the event, joining Coresight Research Founder and CEO Deborah Weinswig in welcoming our invitation-only guests.
