A half day of empowerment and education.The Women Symposium is a half day event that is meant to empower and encourages women to lead in a way that incorporates fundamental principles like connection, cooperation, intuition, empathy, and heart by giving them the skills, knowledge, and a network to do so. We hope to inspire, share stories of women leaders breaking through, allow for genuine connections, promote community engagement and have some fun!
Keynote Speaker Jan Fox
Who she is: Acclaimed broadcaster Jan Fox’s four Emmy Awards attest to her stellar 30-year career in Washington DC network news. But don’t ask her where she went to journalism school. “The only female role model on TV when I was a kid was Lucille Ball on ‘I Love Lucy,’” admits the local celebrity who started her career as a kindergarten teacher and eventually became a college professor then a news anchor. What she does: Fox herself is amazed at the contrast between her childhood—spent growing up poor in Shelbyville, Indiana—and her professional life of interviewing newsworthy giants including actors, business moguls, and US presidents.
