Recharge your leadership skills

Join FIU Business Friday, March 6, 2020, for a day of information and inspiration at South Florida’s premier women’s leadership event.

The Power Up Women’s Leadership Summit, hosted by FIU’s College of Business, is an extraordinary opportunity to change your business mindset and take your career to the next level. Created by women for women, we’ve designed this day to be all about you—and how to get more of what you want from your career and your life. You’ll hear from high-profile, influential women leaders, learn about their personal journeys, and be inspired to take charge and transform your own career and business.

We’ve packed the PowerUp Women’s Leadership Summit with thought-provoking, energizing and motivational speakers, but that’s just the beginning. You’ll make amazing connections with other accomplished women who share your vision and drive. Learn new approaches and get the tools you need to chart a true-to-yourself professional path that’s fulfilling and exciting.


 

From sessions on women in technology to the power of negotiation to the value of mindfulness, you'll leave with new energy, new ideas and a renewed sense of empowerment. There will also be two wine tasting sessions hosted by FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality (space is limited so if you want to attend, you must RSVP with your paid registration).

This game-changing day offers something for women of all ages, and at all career stages. So if you're ready to discover the power of you, join us for PowerUp!

I'M READY TO DISCOVER THE POWER IN ME!
