Why Do Smart Women Stay Connected at the WIN Leadership Summit?

Industry women who connect through WIN are more invested in their careers and businesses. They take advantage of career opportunities and professional support, while striving to do their best in all aspects of their lives. The WIN Leadership Summit covers all these areas, with minimal time out of the office and away from home.

Rep. Ann Wagner, the newly elected Member of Congress for Missouri’s Second District in the House of Representatives, will be our breakfast speaker on Saturday, March 23! We are thrilled to have Rep. Wagner join us for a discussion on the vital roles women have in business and civic involvement. Ann was selected by the Freshman Class of the 113th Congress to be their representative on the Elected Leadership Committee. A local business owner before she decided to seek public office, Rep. Wagner is looking forward to meeting her local St. Louis-area constituents at the WIN Summit.
