Inaugural women’s summit draws 300

Over 300 businesswomen filled the Northern Kentucky Convention Center on June 29 for the inaugural Regional Women’s Summit hosted by the Women’s Initiative of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Betsy Myers, international expert on women’s leadership, delivered two keynote addresses. Nine regional experts led sessions centering on Myers’ seven principles of leadership: authenticity, connection, respect, clarity, collaboration, learning and courage. The day culminated in the annual Shore to Shore Women’s Networking Reception, a benefit for the Women’s Crisis Center held at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter.
