CARMEL - The Michigan-based Great Lakes Women's Business Council will Tuesday hold its inaugural symposium in Carmel. The event, organizers say, aims to address the needs of emerging and established business owners.

The symposium will feature networking opportunities and executive level workshops for attendees. The Great Lakes WBC says it will have a tremendous impact on women-owned businesses, especially those certified by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council. 

"This is an exceptional opportunity for WBENC-certified businesses to leverage their certification," said Meechelle Parker, Indiana WBE and corporate member services manager of the Great Lakes WBC in Indianapolis. "Attendees will build many fruitful business connections and have an opportunity to conduct six months of sales prospecting in one day."

The symposium will take place at 502 East Event Centre in Carmel with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. You can learn more about the event by clicking here.
