Past Agenda


2021 Feedback:

This forum for women was excellent, as always. It was two days of learning, sharing, networking, and spending time with experienced and professional women.
Lawton Fort Sill Economic Development Corporation, Oklahoma

Fantastic agenda and great group of women to network with and learn from.
Virginia Economic Development Partnership

This has been one of the best consultant events I've been to post-COVID. I enjoyed the smaller size of the group which allowed me ample opportunity to get some quality time with all the consultants. I felt that the conference was content rich, and the subjects discussed were extremely relevant. Wonderful event, looking forward to attending again with my colleagues.
West Virginia Department of Economic Development

Even after nearly 25 years as an economic developer, there's still much to be learned! This dynamic group of women brought forth energy, insights, and new ideas to help us be more effective in helping our communities by attracting new investment.
Rowlett Economic Development, Texas
