The Women’s Industry Network has announced the details of the 2017 annual Educational Conference scheduled to take place May 8-10 in Denver. The conference venue, the Westin Denver Downtown, is situated in Denver’s historic LoDo district.
“Be Extraordinary” is the theme for the 11th annual conference and the program’s educational content will focus on creating balance, purpose and results in both the professional and personal facets of the participant’s life. Business ethics expert Chuck Gallagher, host of radio’s Straight Talk and author of the book “Second Chances,” is the 2017 keynote speaker who will take main stage on May 9. Gallagher’s presentation “Positive Choices for Business Success – The Ethics of Excellence” will focus on building relationships and trust through ethics problem- solving.
Additional presenters will include body language expert Traci Brown; Kevin Wolfe, LeadersWay; Dennis Watkins, The Chicago Magic Co.; Jody DeVere, AskPatty.com Inc.; Kelly Stalcup, Assured Performance Network; Allison Young, K&N Management; Steve Trapp, Axalta Coating Systems; Rigina MacNaughton, Salsapants Inc. and Mike Jones, Discover Leadership Training.
“WIN has always partnered with professionals who help women advance,” said Yolanda Sandor, 2017 conference co-chair. “This year’s speakers follow that precedent, presenting on key industry trends, development and leadership.”
In addition to the outstanding professional development that will be presented, attendees also will have an opportunity to participate in the annual WIN Scholarship Walk that benefits the WIN Scholarship Fund.
The WIN Gala and Most Influential Women Reception will be held on Tuesday, May 9, to celebrate the three Most Influential Women Award recipients: Cristina Fronzaglia-Murray, PPG; Renee Ricciotti, 3M Automotive Aftermarket; and Elizabeth Stein, Assured Performance Network. Since 1999, the program has recognized 89 women for both their professional accomplishments and for going beyond requirements of their positions to give back to their communities. The event also will celebrate the recipients of the 2017 WIN Scholarship Program (to be named later this month).

Non-members may attend at a rate of $650 and attendance for the Most Influential Women Reception is $75 per person.
