Despite the increasing emergence of women entrepreneurs and difference makers in the C-Suites of many businesses, fundamental challenges remain along the road to entrepreneurial success for women today. This panel of insightful and successful women have braved these challenges with courage, skill and perseverance.

They will discuss what it means to be a woman trying to build a business from the ground up and what it is really like to be a CEO of a major business. As a builder, creator, or entrepreneur, what drives you? How do you stay true to your core, no matter the challenges you face or how much success comes your way? They will explore the often daunting dilemma of finding a balance among family, work and personal needs and they will address how these challenges intersect with concepts like brand, legacy and company mission in the ever-present quest to produce an acceptable bottom line for investors.

Whether you're an entrepreneur or just curious about the experience of women in the business world, don't miss this exciting and unique panel.
