Women in business are invited to attend a Business SuperPOWer connection event organized by the Women in Business Group. The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Missouri University of Science and Technology, Columbia College and the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry will host the seminar.

“This seminar is all about learning from and connecting with other women in business,” says Karen Leatherman, business development specialist at Missouri S&T SBDC. “People will have a chance to meet someone who has a business skill or area of expertise that they want to learn more about. They will also have the opportunity to help others by sharing their own skill or expertise.”

The registration form includes a section for attendees to designate a business skill they have and a business area they want to learn more about.

The Business SuperPOWer connection event will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at Columbia College, 550 Blues Lake Parkway in Rolla, Missouri. The seminar fee is free, but registration is required. To register, visit businesssuperpower.eventbrite.com.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch and their business cards. Although the event is focused on women, anyone may attend.

The Women in Business group provides women with access to learning, networking and professional growth opportunities.
