For the fourth year in a row, I will be networking and celebrating some awesome women from the Chicagoland area at the Chicago Auto Show’s Women Driving Excellence program. The program is a chance for us to honor women in Chicago who start, accelerate, fuel, and steer others to excellence. This year, the honorees will be introduced by one of last year’s honorees, Janet Davies.
This day is sure to be jam packed with awesomeness as we start out with an hour long networking event. Make sure to bring your business cards so that you can exchange information with other powerhouse women in the city. Last year I was able to connect with some people who were able to help me with a vision for our community garden, and now I’ll be starting it! So much fun!
Women Driving Excellence 2014 – #WDE15 – is sponsored by Nissan. Produced by MJ Tam & Beth Rosen of the #ChicagonistaLIVE show in coordination with the Chicago Tribune to be held at the Chicago Auto Show – Women’s Day on Feb. 16, 2015, it’s sure to knock it out of the park. Registration is free, and the first 100 people to register HERE will receive reserved seating and a ticket into the auto show. The event will start promptly at 10 am on February 16th and last until 4 pm. Stay and look at some of the great vehicles from Nissan and other places. It’s the Auto Show!
The honorees this year include Lisa Madigan – Attorney General of Illinois, Marilynn Gardner – President and CEO of Navy Pier, Dominique Jordan Turner – President and CEO of Chicago Scholars, Kathleen Henson – Founder and CEO Henson Consulting, and Dee Alexander – Song Stylist. If the past years are any indication, this year is going to be phenomenal, and the honorees will keep us captivated with their passion for their purposes in their specific fields.
You can join me and others on Twitter, IG, Facebook and Periscope as we share bits of the day with #WDE16, #NissanCAS, and #ChicagonistaLIVE during the 2-3 pm hour on February 16th.
