Why you should attend

”It’s a powerful time to be a woman! Today’s women leaders are Game Changers. They take charge of their careers and take charge of their futures. These women have made their mark in business and are exceptionally strong role models of what a woman can do. Giving recognition to these deserving women will inspire future generations.” — Dr. Lisa Wicker

Women’s History Month is a time to remember the perseverance and courage women have shown in pursuit of equality. Progress has been slow. This slow progress is why we must encourage more women to become leader whether in government, media, higher education, technology, sports, or the arts and continue the fight for women’s advancement.
