Our Women’s Business Conference is consistently one of the most dynamic, engaging, and exciting events in the Dallas Region. The Tuesday, March 8, 2022, conference marks our 24th year, bringing together regional executives and young professionals who will convene for a day of celebration, encouragement, and critical thinking with influential speakers and leaders. The 2022 program falls on International Women’s Day with a focus on the resurgence, reinvention, and resiliency of women.
We’re excited for our three keynote sessions featuring: JPMorgan Chase senior executive Jennifer Barker who will emphasize the importance of speak up culture, explore risk taking, and offer practical advice on managing your career; Jess Huang, a driving force behind McKinsey’s Women in the Workplace, who will highlight the data-driven insight on women’s progress in Corporate America and how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take a toll; and Diana Trujillo who will share her story of exploration and ascent from Columbia to Mission Leader on the Mars Perseverance.
The ATHENA® Leadership Program Award recognizes exceptional women who excel in their careers, contribute to their communities, and develop women leaders. At the 2022 Women’s Business Conference, we will recognize the recipients of the 2022 ATHENA® Award, presented by Wells Fargo, and 2022 YPL Athena Award®, presented by Thomson Reuters. The deadline for submissions was Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021.
In addition to the traditional lineup of inspiring speakers and leaders, we are pleased to host an exciting community marketplace featuring Dallas Region founders, creators, and entrepreneurs. Each local organization will highlight a unique mission or product. We hope you’ll enjoy exploring their wares, becoming inspired by their mission, and supporting their work both before and during the event as you make purchases this year.
