Second Women in Business Conference
Date: March 15th, 2019
Location: Pinstripes | 7 Oak Brook Center | Oak Brook, IL
Time: 8:30a-2:30 pm (Lunch will be provided)
Illinois women are Second to No One. We have amazing talent, determination, intelligence, and resolve.

The Illinois Chamber welcomes you to our women's conference as we come together to rise and empower our already strong women for a stronger Illinois. This year, we focus our attention on overturning the gendered stereotypes of yesterday and ushering in gender equity across all workplaces.

That means recognizing the power of you and investing in yourself. Becoming a courageous leader, knowing how to promote yourself, and learning how to take advantage of our diversity for greater impact are a few ways to invest in you.

Are you determined to rise? All business professionals can learn and bring home takeaways to improve the workplace. Join us on March 15, 2019!

This year's topics include Diversity and Inclusion, Strength in Leadership, How I Got Here, and an interactive educational networking/social event at the end of the day.

"Having been a speaker and attendee at the first IL Chamber’s Women's Conference, I must say this is an event not to be missed.  I was not only motivated but also inspired by  the speakers.  It is amazing to hear what so many of the women of Illinois have accomplished.  The IL Chamber is providing a very valuable tool by empowering women together.

The networking with the attendees also makes this a worthwhile conference  to attend.   Starting a career path or running a successful business, I urge women young and old to attend and learn.  We, the women of Illinois, are second to no one." -  Janice Christiansen, President and CEO, JC Schultz Enterprises Inc.
