Hanging Out With HYPE - Women's Wednesdays

Apr 16, 2018

Women's Wednesdays, a women's empowerment happy hour, is meant to celebrate the women who kick butt in the community! Featuring a different local wonder woman each month to share their empowerment journey in hopes to help inspire others. Hartford Flavor Company, a woman owned and run business, created Women’s Wednesday to help bring women in the Hartford community together to create a united front to inspire women of all ages in business and across all industries. We are here to encourage other women to embark into entrepreneurship as well as encourage women in corporate America to battle inequality and stereotypes in the workplace, as well as benefit the community.

Join Hartford Flavor Company on Wednesday, April 25th from 5:30-7:30pm for a great event to meet like-minded, empowered women in Hartford. Guests will be able to enjoy cocktails featuring Wild Moon Liqueurs and light bites.

This month they will be featuring Stephanie Bush, the Executive Vice President of Personal Lines and Small Commercial Insurance, at The Hartford. Bush returned to The Hartford in 2013 as the Chief Product and Underwriting Officer for Small Commercial and was then promoted to the head of the business in 2014. Previously, she was Senior Vice President of Product Management in Personal Insurance at Travelers. Prior to that, she spent 20 years at The Hartford in positions of increasing responsibility in Commercial Insurance Product, Underwriting and Field Operations. Bush is on the Board of Directors of the National Council on Compensation Insurance, and she holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Hartford Flavor Company is very excited and grateful to welcome Stephanie, who will be sharing her experience of building a successful career, crushing glass ceilings in the industry and being a female leader in a company that has been commended on its gender equality and inclusive work environment. The Hartford has been named to the 2018 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) for the third consecutive year. The Hartford is one of 104 companies commended this year and was included in both 2017 and the inaugural index in 2016.

Megan Mazzotta"Women's Wednesday has really opened up my eyes to a lot of the amazing things women have been accomplishing in the Hartford community. There are women battling inequality in the workplace, running for public office in record numbers, and building amazing companies. It has truly inspired me in my professional and personal life. It is also a great, fun way to meet empowered like minded women!" - HYPEster Megan Mazzotta
