Event: Connections, a day-long symposium for entrepreneurial women, Oct. 12, Oswego

SUNY Oswego's Center for Business and Community Development will gather women from Central and Northern New York in the spirit of entrepreneurship on October 12, 2006. "Connections" is a day-long symposium designed to bring women of all ages and backgrounds together to explore their entrepreneurial place and power in the Arts, the business world, and the various fields of Science.

The day's agenda will include internationally known business coach, speaker, author and SUNY Oswego graduate, Dr. Lois Frankel. Dr. Frankel's last two books have been translated into over twenty languages and featured on the TODAY Show, CNN, and the New York Times. Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office and Nice Girls Don't Get Rich have also been featured in USA Today and in both PEOPLE and TIME Magazines.

Also on the agenda is Poet Laureate Mona Lake Jones. Dr. Jones is a writer, orator, educator and model of the African American woman on the move. In addition, "Connections" will have breakout sessions in the morning and afternoon discussing challenges to women in the corporate world as well as in entrepreneurship and the creative paths in the arts or sciences. Attendees will hear from Constance Gomez Gregory, JD (Rochon Gregory Associates), Tracy Higginbotham (Women's TIES), Christiana Kaiser (Bluetree Studios), Erin Trowbridge (Center for Forensic Sciences), and others.
