Spirit Of Women Business Confab Slated For March

KENT, OH -  Kent State University’s College of Business is hosting its first Spirit of Women in Business Conference on March 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Kent Student Center. Students, professionals and seasoned business veterans are encouraged to attend and participate in this inaugural event.

The day will be divided into three 60-minute breakout sessions. Participants can choose one of three different presentation options for each session. The sessions will include a wide range of topics, including social media, entrepreneurship and work-life balance. In addition, there will be a continental breakfast, a keynote lunch and a networking reception.

“Our conference planning committee designed a day that will provide career-building and life-skill topics to women at various junctures of their careers, along with the opportunity to network in an informal setting,” said Patty Bujorian, chairperson of the conference planning committee and staff member at the College of Business at Kent State. “We are thrilled to be bringing back to campus successful and dynamic alumna Lisa Clarke, who will share her story with our conference attendees during lunch.”

Clarke, who received her Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Kent State in 1994, will deliver the keynote speech. Clarke is the president and CEO of Rally Marketing Group, an integrated marketing and promotions agency in Seattle, Wash. Her background includes executive leadership roles in data storage, microelectronics and marketing services. In 2005, she was voted one of the top 40 business leaders under 40 in the Puget Sound region.


In conjunction with the Spirit of Women in Business Conference, Kent State’s College of Business will host a resource fair, providing a venue for local businesses and organizations to showcase their services and products to conference attendees. The fair will be located in the second floor rotunda of the Kent Student Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
