The half-day program was a fabulous event of empowerment, mentoring, and networking. The event included a panel discussion, "Inspiring our Legacy," led by MC Kathy Robideau, Market President & Publisher of the Minneapolis/St.Paul Business Journal, and a keynote, "Leading with Intention," by Nancy M. Dahl. A bustling vendor marketplace, a time to honor three outstanding women in Dakota County, and the presentation of five $1,000 scholarships to five incredible young women from our Dakota County area high schools rounded out the event.

Thanks to our presenting sponsor, Vision Source , and all of the other sponsors for supporting this important event.
