Bowie State conference to help women mean business

August 29, 2013 by  

‘Cracking the Glass Ceiling: the Women’s Engagement and EmpowHERment Conference’ is taking place this September at Bowie State University. A portion of proceeds from the conference will go to fund Bowie State University’s Department of History and Government to provide more courses aimed specifically at women.

The conference will feature keynote speaker Sheila Stewart from Radio One DC. It will also feature a number of panel discussions featuring experts in fields such as career development, personal finance, business development, and health and wellness. There will be a total of four panels and guests will have the chance to ask questions about legacy, career, money, and health, while receiving gender specific advice.

This event will also be a networking opportunity for women from all fields and industries. There is a good chance that some professional relationships could come out of the conference, as will as the chance to make like-minded friends.

It is likely that some of the panels will be providing printed reading material for participants to take home to nearby communities, such as Laurel. If so, local printing companies will probably be dealt the task of providing that literature.

Cracking the Glass Ceiling will take place at Bowie State University’s Center for Learning and Technology on September 28 from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm. Tickets are $35 until August 28, $45 after that date, and $30 for students or military personnel. Those interested in finding out more should contact Billie Gross at 301-793-4969.
