The theme this year is ‘Women and Power’- Power which we depict through the bold black as our logo color, Power which is equally represented in standing up to put a fight and sitting down to resolve one. We welcome you this year, not as a guest but as one of the ‘powerful us’ to share stories said and unsaid, inspire through experiences good and bad, and to make connections strong and for long! So, we hope to see you there, Powerful!

Last year’s event: Here’s what our women had to say about their key takeaway from last year’s conference:
“Women are in business! (More than I usually hear about in the news)”
“Networking was my main goal and I accomplished it”
“So much! It was really wonderful being around sharp women and being supported in whatever dreams we have going.”
“Boost of self-confidence and expanded communication skills”
