Are You Ready?

Welcome to Biz 417's Ladies Who Launch, presented by Forvis Mazars, 417-land's ultimate women's business leadership event. We're here to empower, inspire and uplift our female leaders and we promise to have a little (ok a lot) fun while we're at it.

EMBRACE YOUR JOURNEY.

Jam-Packed Agenda

Our half-day conference is designed to provide you with the tools, inspiration and support you need to succeed as a leader in today's competitive business landscape.

This year's theme is Embracing Your Journey. We'll talk about growth, making an impact and elevating your presence. Then we end with a rosé happy hour to celebrate all we've learned and toast to our futures, over a glass (or two) of delicious wine.
