Director's Notes:
WISE Presenters in Columbia
WISE Presenters in St. Louis
"Without my teachers, I wouldn't be where I am today." - Maxine Clark "Be persistent, don't let things die. Make sure the things you want to say are said and said out loud." - Jenny Lodge "It is all about what you bring to the table, not what you look like." - Supriya Shivakumar "Women have incredible power and we can't be afraid to use it." - Kim Olson
That is some of the advice given to over 200 people at the St. Louis Women in Science & Entrepreneurship conference held on September 8th. It was an exciting and successful day thanks to our sponsors, speakers and those who attended. 
The Columbia WISE event was also a success and great advice was given to the audience of almost 100. 
"Look at individuals and mentor them to become entrepreneurs." - Sarah Hill
On October 10th, the Kansas City WISE event will take place sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation. I hope you can join us!

Thank you!
