Terre Haute Women's Conference
After careful consideration and with caution for the health and well-being of the community, the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College has decided to postpone the Terre Haute Women’s Conference originally scheduled for Friday, March 13, 2020. It is our hope to reschedule this event for a later date this year.
Terre Haute Women's Conference - Information
The Terre Haute Women's Conference celebrates women in business, non-profit, community and at home. The goal is to recognize women’s successes while inspiring, educating, empowering and furthering the women of West Central Indiana.
Keynote Speaker - Lindsay Boccardo
Every Generation Matters: Why Building Multi-Generational Teams is the Future of Work - Generations misunderstanding each other is not a new problem. In fact, every generation thinks the one that comes after them is less competent, more entitled or harder to work with. In this interactive session, Lindsay will guide a conversation about generational differences over the five decades of employees in today’s workforce.
Opening Speaker - Andie Hines Lagemann, Founding Director of Own Your Success
Work/Life Blending - As women, we've got so much self-imposed and societal pressure, to be amazing 100% of the time at work stuff as well as home/spouse/kid stuff. Join Andie for an interactive chat about blending (rather than balancing) your responsibilities, and approaching tasks from a place of grace rather than judgement.
Breakout Session Speakers
