ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

If this year has taught us anything, it is how we can all be resilient in the face of adversity. By working through challenges presented to us, we can come out stronger and with a renewed zest for life. Come join us and hear from inspirational speakers who understand this firsthand, learn valuable business insights to further your professional growth, foster relationships with other businesswomen in the community, and more.

During the luncheon, the Salt Lake Chamber will present the ATHENA International Award to an active member who demonstrates creativity and initiative in business, provides valuable service by devoting time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in the community, and assists women in reaching their full leadership potential.

In addition to the ATHENA Award, the Chamber will also recognize community leaders with the Pathfinder Award for their work to “create new paths,” and promote the development and recognition of women in business.
