The conference will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with check-in from 8 to 9 a.m. in the UWF Conference Center and Auditorium, Building 22 on the UWF Pensacola campus. It will offer opportunities to hear from and connect with prominent women leaders who have achieved both personal and professional success.

Registration will open on Jan. 7, 2019. The event, which is free and open to the public, has grown in popularity since it was started in 2014.

“I encourage everyone to attend,” said Dr. Sherry Hartnett, director of the UWF Executive Mentor Program. “Knowledge is power. For women in business in particular, you need to know yourself—your strengths and weaknesses—as well as your impact on others. Moreover, just as important, you need to understand what’s required for success. As a lifelong learner myself, I have realized over the years how important it is to invest continually in your personal and professional development.”
