30th Anniversary Annual Gala for Women in Business: Tomorrow in Downtown Indianapolis

Women in business do better when they network. This is simply a fact. If you’re a businesswoman in Indianapolis, you’d do well to attend “Defining Moments,” the annual gala for the group called “Network of Women in Business.”

The annual luncheon-gala is September 17, 2009, from 11 am to 2 pm at the beautiful Omni Severin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. Located just two blocks from the famous Conseco Fieldhouse and within walking distance of many of the major Indianapolis attractions, the Omni Severin is the official Circle Centre Mall hotel in Indianapolis. It will be the site of some unforgettable moments for the Indy businesswomen who go to the affair. “Defining Moments” celebrates the achievements of businesswomen all over Indiana. The gala, which is the organizing group’s 30th, is a great opportunity to network with other women in the area, learn more about how to succeed as a businesswoman in today’s environment and have a good time enjoying the special luncheon.

Just a few of the issues you may come across at this networking opportunity are:

  • How to act
  • How to dress
  • How to articulate
  • Balancing home and work

The affair’s keynote speaker is a high-profile, high-octane lady, Dr. Jo Ann Gora, who is acting President of the renowned Ball State University. Her presentation focuses on her own journey in the world of business in Indianapolis and its environs, as well as the unique changes in leadership roles for women over the past generations.

One of the highlights of the annual gala is the awards ceremony that recognizes businesswomen in these categories:

  • Businesswoman of the Year
  • Woman to Watch
  • Mentor of the Year

The galas offer relevant vendor showcases as part of the afternoon’s activities. Attendees will be treated to exhibitor showcases presented by some of the leading business sectors of Indianapolis.

Proceeds from the affair support the Network of Women in Business throughout the year. N.O.W.I. is one of the many nonprofit and charity organizations in Indianapolis.
