Tips on Managing a Woman Owned Business

She!: A Virtual Business Conference for Wyoming Women
Topic: Managing a Business
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 1:30 PM to 6:00 PM, 1 sessions ending Friday, April 27

The She Conference kicks off April 17 with a Keynote webinar address from Wyoming’s member of the U.S. House of Representatives and conference co-sponsor, Cynthia Lummis. This will be followed by two weeks of webinars on relevant business topics for women including nationally acclaimed speakers such as Rieva Lesonsky, Founder & CEO of Grow Biz Media and Margot Dorfman, CEP of US Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

The conference kicks-off on Equal Pay Day, April 17, the day that symbolizes how far women must work into 2012 to earn what men earned in 2011. The wage disparity is of particular concern to Wyoming, a state that has consistently reported the largest wage gap in the nation. She Conference sponsors believe that Wyoming’s women entrepreneurs can play a key role in turning that around.
