Ladybosses of Fargo-Moorhead to hold virtual summit Aug. 4
FARGO — Women won’t need to leave the comfort of their own homes to connect with fellow Ladybosses at the third annual Ladyboss Summit in August. Much like what’s happening in the rest of the country in the age of COVID-19, Ladybosses of Fargo-Moorhead had to transition its annual summit from in-person to online.
The solely digital event will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4, and will feature a lineup of speakers, panel discussions, virtual networking with Ladybosses and a craft break. Attendees will also receive a swag box shipped to their door.
Laura Caroon and Danyel Moe founded Ladybosses of Fargo-Moorhead in 2018 as a way for area women to network and build connections with other women, but attendees don’t need to be a local Ladyboss to attend. Women can take part from anywhere with the virtual viewing of the Aug. 4 event that is “tailor-made for ambitious women of the Midwest,” according to the Facebook event page .
"The topics chosen for this event were curated very intentionally to address the needs and challenges of Ladybosses in today's world,” Caroon said via email. “Topics like leading in male-dominated fields, diversity, equity and inclusion, intersectionality, creating healthy workplace culture even during crisis, mental health, digital marketing strategy and how to level up in your career.”
Ladyboss Digital Summit speakers include: Camille Weber Grade, vice president of marketing and customer experience at Bushel; Colette Campbell, director of talent acquisition, diversity and inclusion at Bremer Bank; Erin Maye Quade, advocacy director at Gender Justice; Kara Jorvig, founder and CEO of Allegro Group; Nicole Turchin, director of inspiration at BNG Team; Briana Scearcy, chief people officer at Stoneridge Software; and co-founders Caroon and Moe.
The panelists for the event’s two panels — working smarter and making mental health a priority — will be announced soon.
An all-access ticket to the virtual summit is $125 apiece plus fees and includes all of the live content, networking, resources and swag box, according to ticketing website Eventbrite. Student all-access tickets are $50 apiece. The boxes — which will include event resources, swag and craft supplies — will be sent out to attendees beforehand.
