The graduation ceremony for "Women in Leadership: Focusing on the Future" will take place during the SD CEO 11th Annual Women's Business Conference.

Your registration for the "Women in Leadership: Focusing on the Future" course includes a complimentary registration to the "SD CEO Women's Business Conference" ($135 value).

 

Welcome to the Seventh Class of SD CEO's Women In Leadership!

We are a powerful sisterhood of women making a difference in our business, organization or non-profit AND in our community, both personally and professionally. We are stronger TOGETHER.

Our June 11 & 12 sessions will be virtual via Zoom and the agenda is now posted. We have an outstanding line-up of powerful speakers that will not only help you analyze

your own leadership strengths but also better define what it means to be a leader in this new world of work. 


We are working on the July 8th & 9th agendas. At this point, we hope to have the July sessions in person at the BHSU-Rapid City campus and will make that decision in early June. 

Resiliency, flexibility, creativity, self-care, and connection is what will take us into our next leadership class. The SD CEO team is ready for the challenge. Are you? 

 

The Women In Leadership: Focusing on the Future series is sponsored by Coeur Mining.
