Women have an innate ability to support, learn and empower one another through shared experiences and stories.

Every woman is at a different place on life’s journey. She might be at the beginning of her story trying to discover her strengths and where to go next, or honing her craft with an eye toward a top leadership position, or leveraging decades of life’s lessons and wisdom to lift up others.

Join the Business Record to kick off your day one Friday every month at our Fearless Friday interactive event series. Focused on women and gender topics, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from and connect in breakout sessions with others around the state equally as passionate about these issues. Women, gender-nonconforming individuals and male allies are all encouraged to be fearless with us.

When you register, you can either sign up for just one event, or register for the entire series by selecting a series ticket. Each month you will receive an email with the Zoom link to gain access to that month’s Fearless Friday event.
