What is the Exchange really about? Here’s what last year’s attendees had to say:

About our Keynote Speaker: 

Angela Martin is an army veteran and is now assigned to military affairs liaison between the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the offices of judge advocate generals of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard and to the commandant of the Marine Corps.  In 2013, she filed a complaint against her employer for gender discrimination and brought to light what was described by an investigator as a “toxic workplace.”  When she testified in front of Congress in April, Ms. Martin described ”a pervasive culture of retaliation and intimidation” within the CFPB workplace. In June of 2014, CFPB settled the case with Ms. Martin.

Registration for this event is not yet open. Check back soon!
