Marcum, the national accounting and advisory services firm, announced this week their first annualMarcum Women’s Forum, entitled "Safe And Sound: Smart Choices for Savvy Women," being held September 26, 2016, in New York City.

The event will primarily focus on personal security and health issues for executive women. Notably, environmental activist Erin Brockovich will deliver the keynote address at the half-day breakfast event at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

"Women account for over $7 trillion of consumer and business spending, and generally speaking, we’re the ones doing the purchasing for our families," said Rorrie Gregorio, partner-in-charge of the Marcum Family Office Practice group, per a statement. "Also dangerous are the unrecognized risks women face when traveling alone. Our goal in presenting this forum is to educate more women about how to make smart decisions for the safety and health of themselves and their families."

The agenda will also feature a panel discussion titled "Women Traveling Alone," presented by Marcum partner Frank Rudewicz and principal Heather Bearfield. Ms. Brockovich’s planned topic will be, "Having a Voice in Our Health. "
