“We launched this group a year ago, and we want to bring everyone together to celebrate our one-year anniversary and talk about current trends with women in business,” says Karen Leatherman, business development specialist at Missouri S&T SBDC. “We will also have a group discussion about those trends and have the opportunity to share best practices and connect with others.”
