2019 Feedback:

As a first-time attendee and sponsor, I was very impressed with intelligent presentations and level of engagement by the consultant attendees. I felt welcomed, inspired and educated after spending time with these very accomplished female leaders. It was worth both my time and my company's investment, and I look forward to attending in future years.

I thought the forum was very well organized, the speakers were great and represented a wide range of topics, and there was enough time built into network with others.

This was my first time attending the Forum. It's one of the best ED conferences I've attended. Content, presenters, food, venue, etc. were all top notch. Amy Geber was a fantastic moderator.
Commerce Lexington, Kentucky (sponsor)

As always, I find it very valuable to have face time with site selectors and to exchange ideas with peers from around the US.
