Event Information

Join the Washington Business Journal and Wells Fargo on September 17 and help us celebrate women in business with a symposium on successful business navigation. This event will focus on women business owners, with topics relevant to today's business climate.

Our panelists will cover topics that impact different facets of business navigation, from start-up to sustainability, from non-profit to academic, and all from the lens of women in the business world today.

Together, these accomplished business women bring more than 100 years of leadership experience and will share their story of developing the strategies, skills, and sensibilities needed for success in the 21st century. Topics to be discussed include:
