Kent State University presents its second Spirit of Women in Business Conference with the theme “The Empowered Woman.” The conference takes place on March 7 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Kent Student Center. Students, professionals and seasoned business veterans are encouraged to attend.

The conference will be divided into three 60-minute breakout sessions where a range of topics, such as financial literacy, performance improvement, communication skills, workplace skills and breaking stereotypes, among others, will be discussed. In addition, networking opportunities will be available.

Two distinguished speakers will deliver keynote addresses at the event. DeLores Pressley, motivational speaker, author and founder of DeLores Pressley Worldwide and the BornSuccessful Institute, will deliver the breakfast keynote address.
