If you’re looking for an event that empowers women, then we have just the thing for you! In honor of Women’s History Month, the Independence Business Alliance* is hosting their 3rd annual Women in Business Panel Discussion on March 29!

The panel will include women business owners, professionals, and state and local leaders from the LGBT community and allies. This is the biggest Women in Business event for IBA, and it will not disappoint.

From 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, network and share experiences with other professionals while hearing wise wisdom in this discussion called, “From Partnerships to Power: Women in Business Today.”

It’s important to know that this event is not a women-only event. So, men, show your support for the hardworking and dedicated women in Philadelphia and join in on the fun!

Women in Business Chair, Stacia Fischer, says: “The goal of this event is to honor women within our community and provide all that attend an invaluable take-away. This panel discussion provides an intimate setting to discuss the day to day situations, and if we leverage those resources (partnerships) we can soar to greater heights and positions of power.”
