The 6th Annual Women's Business Forum Conference was held on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at Venue Forty|50 in Addison. Thanks to Presenting Sponsor Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Carrollton, over 150 business & community leaders (mostly women) attended this full day event. They were treated to a panle discussion with local, female city council members on how they found their seat & an activity designed to empower women to their full potential, even if that means sometimes saying, "No." Thank you to Mutual of Omaha Bank & BB&T Bank for hosting these sessions.

Our Series Sponsor is Edward Jones - Sheryl Giles which enabled us to have a very special keynote speaker, Sarah Shadonix, the founder & CEO of Scout & Cellar. She has built her business, a clean-crafted wine company based in Farmers Branch, in such short order that we were fortunate to learn her secrets to entreprenuership, work-life balance, following your passion & working hard to succeed at all costs.

Thanks to our Table Sponsors Brookhaven College, City of Farmers Branch, Republic Services, Town of Addison & Valwood Improvement Authority. Also a shout out to our In-Kind Sponsors like Alphagraphics - Carrollton, Vizcarra Hospitality, Southwest Airlines, M-Squared Real Estate Team, Reliant Energy, Armor Wealth Management  & Ron Barbosa Photography.
