EY Sponsors E-business Workshop for Women

Ernst & Young has announced it will sponsor an April 5 gathering of women business leaders in New York, and will hold a special April 4 e-business workshop in conjunction with the conference.

The meeting covers professional and lifestyle issues, and is organized by Women.future. It will be beamed via satellite to more than 200 locations across the world. An expected 100,000 women and men are expected to attend.

Among other activities, the e-business workshop will enable attendees to divide into groups to explore issues related to dot.com economies. E&Y also will hold an inaugural dinner on the evening of April 4 at the New York Stock Exchange.

Women.future is asking potential attendees to help design the agenda by logging onto a special Web site to provide feedback.
