Empowering Women in Industry will be hosting an event and gala in Chicago on September 26, 2019. This event will be a full day of speakers, sessions, interactive workshops and an awards gala.
Our goal is to celebrate, educate, and empower women. This event will be for any woman in industry looking to connect and grow both personally and professionally.
“It is important to celebrate the accomplishments of these leading ladies in industry; they are the role models needed to build our future workforce” says Founder and CEO, Charli K. Matthews. With a broad range of session leaders, you will learn things such as Change Intelligence, Mentoring & Workforce Development, and Personal Branding & Networking. The event will close with an awards gala where we will celebrate ourselves, each other, and recognize leading ladies in the industry making a difference and effecting change. "It's such an incredible moment in time in which we live; we are in the middle of a cultural shift in which we are placing greater value on women and the skills / capabilities / value women bring to the workplace. Working with an incredible group of professionals to present and facilitate interactive workshops, I am super excited to be part of this conference, which is designed to give women in male-dominated industries recognition, networking opportunities, positive encouragement, and useful tools for their toolbox" says steering committee member, Cieana Detloff, about the initiative.
