Episode 4: Fran Pastore and Lt.Governor Susan Bysiewicz

This month in WBDC Conversations, CEO Fran Pastore sits down with a very special guest, Connecticut’s Lt. Governor, Susan Bysiewicz. Fran and the Lt. Governor discuss issues and initiatives affecting small businesses in Connecticut – especially those that are women-owned – including:

  •  Governor Lamont’s Council on Women and Girls
  •  The state’s new Paid Family Leave Program
  • The recent increase in CT’s minimum wage

Susan and Fran also discuss why it’s critically important to be civically engaged, especially heading into 2020 and the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote. Tune in to hear the Lt. Governor’s thoughts on celebrating such milestones while continuing to look ahead at the work that remains to be done. And find out which key members of the suffrage movement are Connecticut natives!
