Empowering Women in Industry’s one-day conference will close with an awards gala on Sept. 26, 2019 at the Chicago Athletic Hotel, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The event will honor 11 women, to be announced that night, throughout various aspects of industry. The goal of Empowering Women in Industry’s awards gala is to recognize women doing significant work in the industry, and to inspire other women on what they can accomplish within industrial fields.
“The level of accomplishment and diversity of careers of our award nominees is truly impressive. What a huge honor to be asked to play a role in recognizing these remarkable women and I look forward to meeting them in person” said Eileen O’Neil, Empowering Women in Industry committee member and Executive Director of the Water Environment Federation. Tickets are now available for the event.
