The Ohio Women's Conference is a first time event.  It is a statewide conference focusing on professional development, community, networking, entrepreneurship and women's health.  This conference gives women a tremendous opportunity to grow, development, learn and make connections.  In addition, the conference lends itself to be a statewide dialogue for Women in Ohio.  This year's theme is "Experience the Power of Connection!"  We all know how important it is to make connections.  Life is all about connecting the dots. 

The conference will have three tracks:  Entrepreneurship, Professional Development and Community.  There will be a total of twelve sessions that will fall under these tracks and over 25 exceptional presenters.  Also, there will be two keynote speeches and the opportunities for exhibitors to display their goods and services.  Finally, during the conference, we will be recognizing individuals for their commitment and hard work to achieve with our "Glass Ceiling Award" and our "Men Who Champion Women Award."

We believe this conference will be the first of many.  We hope that you will join us for this first time event.
