WE Speak: From Local Government to the Supreme Court, the Future is Female


WE Speak is a program designed to inspire, educate, and provide networking opportunities to women who lead while recognizing women leaders in our region. Attendees will hear personal experiences, advice, and lessons learned from other women leaders, while networking with other women in the Cincinnati region.
