(Washington, D.C. August 15, 2017)—The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is pleased to announce that newly named Indiana Secretary of Career Connections and Talent Blair Milo will serve as a keynote panelist at their upcoming National Women’s Business Conference.  The conference will take place October 15 – 17 in Minneapolis.  Milo, who most recently served as Mayor of LaPorte Indiana, will participate in the conference’s Breaking Barriers panel.

“NAWBO was founded as the first advocacy organization for women business owners.  Each generation of NAWBO members has played an integral role in breaking down existing barriers that they faced,” said Kathy Warnick, NAWBO National Board Chair. “We are pleased to assemble this Breaking Barriers panel to discuss what is being done in the public and private sectors to tackle the current obstacles facing women business owners and how NAWBO can continue to make an impact.  As the chief executive officer of LaPorte and now the Secretary charged with Career Connections and Talent for the state of Indiana, we believe Blair Milo is ideally suited to share her thoughts and experiences on this topic.”

The NAWBO annual Women’s Business Conference brings together hundreds of women entrepreneurs from across the country who are looking to be inspired and gain fresh ideas, connections and resources.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Together We Dare.”  The conference will also feature keynote remarks from Erin Brockovich and Gayle Tzemach Lemmon.  For more information about the October conference Click Here.
