HIGHLIGHTS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS

2017 Women in Industry Forum

"I walked out of EVERY session with great ideas; have implemented several since I have been back. For the size of my company and the budget we have; it’s on the higher end of things; but I believe worth the money."
 
L. Neel
Connecticut-Electric, Inc.

"I loved the revelation that in finding our own voice, there is no longer a “glass ceiling” that exists. Although I cannot attach a price to that, I can say this is an invaluable realization."

S Novosad
Capital Tristate

"This is such a wonderful networking experience and I have made lifelong friends just in the last two years of attending. The exposure to leaders in the industry is an inspiration to continue my journey and constantly find ways to improve and better myself. This conference is a way to "restart" and it gives you the motivation to make positive changes and the confidence to not be in fear of taking that action."
