The highly successful Midwest Invent Your Future Conference for Women is joining forces with Indiana Governor Mike Pence to create the first annual Indiana Governor’s Conference for Women on November 5th, 2013. It’s a day of “community, connection and inspiration” for women who are passionate about achieving new career heights, expanding or launching a business and catalyzing their personal growth.
As the Midwest’s largest educational event for businesswomen and entrepreneurs, the conference will feature an extraordinary line-up of dignitaries and iconic business leaders speaking at the inaugural event, including Martha Stewart, author of “Living the Good Long Life: A Practical Guide to Caring for Yourself and Others,” and Charlotte Beers, author of “I’d Rather Be in Charge: A Legendary Business Leader’s Roadmap for Achieving Pride, Power, and Joy at Work.” Browse the agenda, download the flyer and see the partners supporting this historic day.
From Governor Mike Pence and Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann
“The facts speak for themselves,” said Governor Pence. “Women owned businesses and corporate women leaders are a powerful economic engine in our state. Not only are women-owned firms contributing $3 trillion annually to the U.S. economy and accounting for 16% of all jobs, but national research shows women entrepreneurs will create 5 to 5.5 million new jobs across the U.S. by 2018 – more than half of the total new small-business jobs expected to be created during that time, and about one-third of the total new jobs anticipated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In Indiana, we mean business and women are leading the way not only in job creation but also in the corporate world where they are moving into leadership roles. I am committed to furthering that growth.” Read the full article on Inside INdiana Business.
