“Evolving in Changing Markets”
Panelists to be announced soon

Why you should attend:
The number of women who are working is on the rise in Mississippi, and we want to celebrate the impact that women make in the workplace. Join us for a program featuring female leaders who have left their mark on the business community in Jones County. The Forum will highlight issues facing modern working women, in addition to providing tips from your local peers on the challenges they have overcome along their journeys to success. Kit Redmond is the President and Executive Chair of RTR Media, the production company behind Home Town, and she will deliver a powerful keynote on the “Feminine Strengths of Leadership” over lunch.

Not just for women either! Men are encouraged to attend and network and learn. If you supervise women or have female colleagues or clients, you too will walk away with new insights on improving workplace relationships and additional best practices.

Networking! Arrive at 10:00 AM for coffee and conversations before the program begins. Additional breaks between sessions will allow time for you to mingle with your fellow Chamber members and the vendors so you can make connections that could help elevate your business.

Vendor Opportunities:
Coming soon!
