Friday, October 23
9:30 a.m – 5:00 p.m.

Come to our 19th annual Women in Business Summit, presented by Baylor Scott & White Health, because you are passionate about being the best possible leader you can be.

You want to better understand our times through the eyes and words of others—and be inspired by some of the greatest female leaders in North Texas.

You want to learn how they have coped, sustained their vision, and managed their professional lives while continuing to make their mark during one of the most trying times of our lifetime.

You want to be ready for the new normal.

Together, through our collective diversity and shared experiences, we will be better prepared to be the change-makers that can transform our workplaces—and our personal lives.
