Ladies America Partnering with The Center for Women in Business

From Jenna Nicole Levine: WASHINGTON, D.C. - Ladies America is pleased to announce their partnership with the United States Chamber of Commerce Center for Women in Business for the second annual “Women Leading the Future” day-long conference. The conference will be held on Saturday, May 5th, 2012 at the US Chamber of Commerce building at 1615 H Street NW Washington, DC, 20062 from 9am-3pm. This conference brings some of the most powerful women in America together to discuss major issues and topics that are important to women today.  Focusing on women making a difference in the world, discussions will deal with where women are today and how they can become stronger, more effective leaders and why their leadership is critical as we head into the future.

“Ladies America is thrilled to have such a strong partner as the Center for Women in Business for this year’s  Women Leading the Future conference,” said Lindsey Mask, Founder of Ladies DC/ Ladies America. “We are truly witnessing a revolution of women in many areas, including entrepreneurship, innovation, and overall leadership.  As many know, women hold 80% of the nation’s buying power across the country, but fewer are aware that women owned businesses have grown by 44% over the past ten years.  This makes the partnership with the Center for Women in Business all the more valuable.  And while our conference will run the gamut on subjects covered, such as politics, health care, technology, and finance; the experts and discussion points we have arranged around business and business leadership will be key to the day.”

Ladies America is a national network of professional women following the motto "Women Helping Women" aimed at connecting and assisting one another personally and professionally and ultimately creating a national voice on issues important to women.

As the world's largest business federation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is uniquely positioned to promote the potential of women in business. The goal of the Center for Women in Business is to help unleash the untapped potential of women in business for the benefit of our local and national communities.

Roberta Phillips, Executive Director of the Center for Women in Business, shares the Centers excitement about the partnership, ‘the Center is delighted to be partnering with Ladies America for the Women Leading the Future conference here at the United States Chamber of Commerce.  Ladies America’s motto of “Women Helping Women” goes in hand-in-hand with the mission of the Center and we look forward to providing an avenue for personal and professional growth for such a dynamic group of women.”
