Although the forum is geared toward women, men can also learn a great deal from the forum’s panelists. This session will be moderated by Judge Glenda Hatchett, Esq., Founder Partner, The Hatchett Firm, PC and star of former court show, Judge Hatchett and currently The Verdict with Judge Hatchett.

“Yes, the 100 is a men’s organization; however, women play a major role in the success of the organization.  More importantly, we must understand the issues facing women to best provide support for them and better serve our female mentees.  Wells Fargo has helped to guide this initiative from its inception, and we are thrilled to have The Coca-Cola Company, Delta Air Lines and  UPS join them in sponsoring this session,” said Thomas W. Dortch, Jr., Chairman, 100 Black Men of America, Inc.
