2014 CWiB Conference

For so long, the path to success has been narrowly defined. These days, women are challenging the notion of the traditional female role, in both their professional and personal lives. This year’s CWIB Conference, Dare to Disrupt, on November 14, 2014, will bring together exceptionally accomplished women to discuss how women can achieve success even if they go against the status quo and take a nontraditional path to get there.
