The Women in Business Expo & Conference over the years has developed into an event for entrepreneurs and small business owners to network and expand their current market share. The Women in Business Expo & Conference is about helping women throughout Kentucky discover empowerment and achieve success in their business ventures.
Now in its 10th year, 100 Wise Women is absolutely the best forum for connecting with Louisville's smart, civic-minded, professional women. At each event, you'll hear the fascinating leadership journey of an inspiring woman, and enjoy thought-provoking conversations led by a Wise Woman host. The atmosphere is always welcoming, comfortable and energizing.

IWL Blog Highlight: 5 Lessons Learned from Inspiring Women Night with the Indiana Fever
by, Rachel Gates, Marketing & Communications Intern with IWL Foundation
The IWL team attended Inspiring Women Night with the Indiana Fever last Tuesday night, which is an annual event that all WNBA teams put on to highlight, recognize, and celebrate key women. For this year's event we had the pleasure of hearing from four of The Great Eight as well as from Karen Hough. The Great Eight are eight African-American women who finished their doctorates in education at the same time this year at Indiana University. Together, they created a "sister circle" for support. Karen Hough is the Founder & CEO of ImprovEdge, and has been using improvisation as an engaging learning tool for over 12 years. She's also a huge supporter of the IWL mission and frequent IWL keynote speaker.
It was an incredible line up of speakers and each shared insights I personally found very valuable. I've shared below the lessons I learned from attending this amazing event.
