Lehigh Valley LaunchBox now offers an educational event series focusing on the unique challenges and victories of female entrepreneurs called LaunchBox Ladies: From Passion to Profit.

Using multiple formats including conversational interviews, videos and events, LaunchBox Ladies will share the stories of women at all stages of their businesses and careers.

A series of conversations are scheduled through summer 2018 and are free to students and the public on a limited first-come, first-served basis.

All events take place at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and include lunch.

The first event will take place Nov. 15, featuring Tanya Wright, best known for her roles as Crystal Burset on the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black” and as Deputy Kenya Jones on HBO’s “True Blood.”

To register for the event, visit launchbox.lv.psu.edu/ladies.
