The Chicago Auto Show was THE place to be this year for Women’s Day on February 12. Hundreds of women came out to peruse the latest auto trends and attend this inaugural event, “Women Driving Excellence”. This first-time networking event was hosted by Debi Lilly, Elisa All, Jill Salzman, Barbara Rozgonyi, Saya Hillman, MJ Tam and Beth Rosen and presented by Broadway in Chicago, Cars.com, RedEye, Chicago Tribune and Monika Dixon PR.
It was a chance to mix and mingle, sample spa and wellness services and enjoy the show. I was thrilled to be included as one of the speakers/honorees for this first “Women Driving Excellence” presentation that also included Anupy Singla (celebrity author, entrepreneur and Chicago Now blogger) , Corri McFadden (E-DropOff founder), Genevieve Thiers (Sittercity.com founder, serial entrepreneur), Karen Weigert (Mayor’s Chief Sustainability Officer) and Luvvie Ajayi (The Red Pump Project co-founder).
Every speaker was inspiring and had incredible stories to share about how they “start, accelerate, fuel and steer others to excellence.” The event also included a Broadway in Chicago “I Love Lucy” stage performance.
I will treasure my award and this special day shared with inspiring and empowering women! Congrats to all!
