Video: Breaking Barriers

By She Runs It

Everyone has their own definition of success: the path they take, the goals they set, the achievements they are most proud of, and how they envision the “finish line.” Recognizing that no two professional journeys are the same, the Midwest Young Executive Committee and She Runs It has programmed an evening of conversations, connections and community to explore and celebrate the fact that the road to success is not a “one-way” avenue.



Kick-off the evening by connecting over lite bites and beverages while you treat yourself to complimentary hair and/or makeup touch-ups and professional headshots.

Panel Discussion

Hear from business owners and industry leaders who define success on their own terms while living their best life.  Q&A to follow.
