The annual BizTimes Media Women in Business Symposium will be held on Aug. 25 with a focus on moving forward and taking action in a time of disruption.

After two-plus years of constant change, uncertainty and stress, this year’s Women in Business event will focus on women shaping their path forward, whatever it might be. From breaking into the c-suite to starting a business to taking on tough technical projects or finding work-life balance. The Women in Business Symposium will focus on making and acting on the choice to take control and proactively seize opportunities rather than waiting for change to disrupt your life.

The event will include a panel discussion featuring:

The panel discussion will be moderated by Kathy Thornton-Bias, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee

Following the panel discussion, there will be multiple breakout sessions for deeper discussions on topics like: How future fit are you? career navigation; attraction, retention, and positioning your firm as an employer of choice; crucial conversations; and mental health and wellness.

The Women in Business Symposium will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 noon on Thursday, Aug. 25, at the Brookfield Conference Center, 325 S. Moorland Road, Brookfield. Click here to register.
