On September 2nd Kathy, Julie and our friend/client Patrica Miller attended the 29th Annual Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference in Chicago.
A highlight from this year’s event was when one of the conference sponsors, Deluxe®, unveiled their mission to champion 100 small businesses in America, in celebration of their 100th year in business. Their initiative consists of telling the stories of 100 small businesses in a cross-continental video roadshow, producing a feature-lengthdocumentary about the small business revolution in America, and hosting a competition awarding one small business $25,000.
Another great story from the conference was told by Reshma Saujani, Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code. After losing a run for office she redirected her passion to make an impact by generating awareness and activating industry leaders to close the gender gap in STEM education. In 2012, Saujani launched Girls Who Code, connecting high school girls with computer science educational opportunities and empowering girls to pursue advanced STEM careers. Since attending this conference, our graphic designer has enrolled her daughter in this program.
