Lead like a Woman. Build like a Woman. Guide like a Woman.

Define your own success as a woman and join the Carolina Women in Business community to hear from leaders who are starting businesses, navigating Fortune 500 companies, shaping their industries, and tackling life at the same time. Hone your skills and get excited to fill in your “_____.”

No matter what being a woman (or elevating women) means to you, we seek to build community, resources, and knowledge around supporting women to achieve their dreams. This year’s conference will feature a line-up of leading executives and thought-provokers across industries, passions, and functions. You'll have opportunities to engage with experts in career development workshops and dynamic panels on topics both professional and personal, designed to show that women are now more than ever able to pursue dreams as multi-dimensional as we are.

We look forward to welcoming you to UNC Kenan-Flagler!
