Women's Business Connect - Resilence, Women and Leadership

Accepting the role of leader requires a commitment to the cause, stamina to face the challenges, and skills to stay steady and move forward. Too many women wait until they feel confident to say yes. You will be reminded that you are a resilient woman and can choose to feel the fear and step up to lead or lead more in your own way.

When: Wednesday, October 21

Time: 12:00-1:30pm

Cost: FREE
