President Gloria Larson Co-Hosts Bloomberg Radio Show "Taking Stock"

Bloomberg Radio did a live broadcast on Wednesday, May 7 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. from the Bentley Trading Room featuring a two-hour conversation focused on millennial women in the workplace and the perceptions, realities, and challenges they face – as well as a focus on solutions. The show was co-hosted by President Gloria Larson and Bloomberg host of "Taking Stock" Carol Massar. The impetus for the conversation comes from Bentley University's PreparedU survey that reveals the differences in perception of career preparedness between millennial women and men. Highlighting the disparity in perceptions and potential solutions will serve as a call to action for stakeholders to find innovative ways to help prepare millennial women for successful careers and a fulfilling life.

The schedule of interviews was as follows. Each is linked to a podcast of the actual interview:

2:00 - 2:30 -   Opening discussion with Gloria Larson and Carol Massar
