Power Your Potential Leadership Conference at RIT, June 5
Keynote speaker Maggie Brooks headlines the Women’s Alumnae Network event
Leading women in the Rochester business community have something to say to their peers on how to “Power Your Potential.”
A lifelong learning conference for women, sponsored by the Women’s Alumnae Network at Rochester Institute of Technology’s E. Philip Saunders College of Business, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, June 5, in the Lowenthal Building on the RIT campus.
