Women in Business students Attend National Association of Women Business Owners Luncheon
Scott College of Business Mentoring Coordinator, Madison Marshall, and 6 of our Women in Business student leaders attended the National Association of Women Business Owners Luncheon on April 20, in Indianapolis.
Thanks to the generous support of Kathy Cabello, President and CEO of Cabello Associates Inc., the students were given the opportunity to attend the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Luncheon, which was attended by a variety of women entrepreneurs and executives. She personally asked Women In Business, a new student organization from Scott College of Business, to be her guests and meet women business owners in the larger economic, social and political spheres as they were celebrating NAWBO’s 25th anniversary of supporting and advocating for women entrepreneurs. This event had a tremendous impact on the students' professional development. They had the opportunity to network with some of Indianapolis' most powerful women while enjoying a wonderful lunch and presentations as business leaders share their stories, challenges, and successful experiences.
As one of the students said, “It was such a wonderful and enriching experience to not only see those outstanding people but also to interact with them. I am both humbled and grateful for those moments and will make it my top priority to put into practice what I have learned on that day.”
Pictured at the event are Felicia Lawrence, Regina Warren, Tammy Butler, and Lotus Mallbris; as well as Women in Business executives.
