'Pursuing Power' at Top Women in Hardware & Building Supplies
Registration is currently open for the informative, two-day event in Chicago and hosted by HBSDealer.
Join us in Chicago for the "Pursuing Power" panel discussion.
Asking for that promotion, an overdue raise, or a shift in responsibility remains one of the most critical factors in how executives rise in the industry.
Despite this, women are still less likely to make the ask in the workplace - and less likely to be rewarded for trying. How can we set our companies up to foster female talent? How can ambitious women make the right pitch?
Join HBSDealer at Fairmont Chicago on Nov. 10 - 11 for Top Women in Hardware & Building Supply. Registration for the event is going on now!
During the “Pursuing Power” panel discussion, Emery Jensen Distribution's Alison Dowell, Lita Abele of US Lumber Inc, Vanessa Melancon Pierce of Melaco Sisters Hardware & Supplies, and Jean Niemi of True Value will provide a breakdown of how women are pushing boundaries and pursuing power in today's world.
The Top Women in Hardware & Building Supply program honors women making outstanding contributions to their companies and their communities. The goal of the program, now in its second year, is to recognize achievement and promote diversity.
We hope to help attract more women into the business, encourage those already here to stay, and show them how to reach the C-suite.
Lodging information for the Chicago Fairmont is available here.
