On October 19, 2018, women leaders from the West Suburbs will converge at North Central College to help advance female and minority entrepreneurship. Designed by women for women, this conference is a unique offering in the region: it collaborates with various institutions in the West Suburbs that align with our goal of supporting female student and local entrepreneurs, whether they are in pre-start or in the process of accelerating their business.
This year marks North Central College’s inaugural participation in the global movement, Women Entrepreneurship Week (#WEW2018), an annual event that celebrates female entrepreneurship during a designated week in October. To date, more than 100 colleges and universities around the world have joined the movement.
The conference theme is Speak Up: The Power of the Woman’s Voice in the World of Business. The opening panel discussion will feature female thought leaders and their success stories. Presentations and workshops led by experts are designed to further strengthen girls’ and women’s voices on various levels: • building confidence and learning tools to start or grow your business • public speaking skills, including presentation and vocal coaching • understanding how you can advocate for your business via legal systems • communicating your brand effectively via social media and marketing strategies, and • encouraging diverse voices in any workplace.
Registration includes: • lunch • admission to all presentations and workshops • cocktails and hors d’oeuvres • complimentary professional digital head shots • and lots of door prizes!
